Younger Member Forum Print E-mail
The Younger Member Forum (YMF) is open to members 35 years of age or younger, as well as others that are still "young at heart." The group is a stepping stone for young engineers and recent graduates to develop professionally via a mix of technical presentations, community service, student outreach, and social activities. These opportunities assist individuals in building a network of peers that are also in the early stages of their careers. To encourage students to continue their involvement as younger members, ASCE offers a special graduated dues schedule for members in their first five years after receiving a baccalaureate degree.

If you would like to receive announcements of upcoming YMF meetings, social gatherings, and other events in the NYC area on a regular basis, you can subscribe to the Met Section email list or follow our page on Facebook. Anyone interested in getting involved with our group is encouraged to simply show up at one of our future events listed on the right side of this page or contact any of the YMF officers for more information. If you live or work in Rockland or Westchester counties, the Lower Hudson Valley Branch has its own Younger Member Group.

Morgan DiCarlo Recognized in ASCE's New Faces of Civil Engineering College Edition Print E-mail
Each year, ASCE recognizes ten promising students who have demonstrated strong analytical skills, practical ingenuity, creativity, good communication skills, business and management knowledge, leadership, high ethical standards, professionalism, and flexibility as part of its New Faces of Civil Engineering – College Edition. These well-rounded students reflect the hope and promise of the next generation of civil engineers.

Morgan DiCarlo, a junior at Stony Brook University, is included in 2015 class of New Faces. The founder and current President of the ASCE student chapter at Stony Brook, she was the recipient of the ASCE Met Section Scholarship in May 2014 and also received the ASCE Long Island Branch Student Outreach Committee's Certificate of Recognition in 2014.

YMF Participates in the Eastern Regional Younger Member Council (ERYMC) Print E-mail
Each year, the leaders of the ASCE younger member groups along the east coast meet at one location to share ideas about how to improve their respective sections and the civil engineering community. On January 9 and 10, 2015, about 100 younger members met in Miami, Florida for a packed schedule of interactive sessions. The attending Metropolitan Section YMF officers included Kimberly Hirt (First Vice President), Sam Singer (Second Vice President), and Avi Englard (Treasurer).
Mentors and Mentees Needed for Mentoring Program Print E-mail
College students and engineering professionals are invited to join the Younger Member Forum's pilot Mentoring Program. Mentoring groups will consist of three people: a college student/entry level professional, intermediate level professional, and a senior level professional. Groups will be formed based on civil engineering field, location and career path.
2014 Fall YMF Technical Lecture Print E-mail
On Thursday, November 13, 2014, representatives from Langan Engineering, a firm well known for their geotechnical specialty, presented to fellow young professionals. Vijay Veluchamy lectured about the Ajyad Hotel and Hospital: Bridging over a Tunnel in the Heart of Makkah, Saudi Arabia. Professional Engineers Seth Martin, Samuel Singer, and Ryan Lambert also gave a presentation about the Redevelopment of the former St. Vincent's Hospital in Manhattan. The technical lectures were followed by a happy hour at Stitch.

The YMF's Technical Lecture Series seeks presentations in all areas of civil engineering such as structural, geotechnical, water resources, construction, environmental, and transportation. Presenters and attendees benefit greatly from this event in that attendees learn about recent projects that are presented and the speakers receive a critique of their presentation from attendees. If you are interested in presenting, please send an email with a proposed topic to our Technical Chair, Jessica Wang, at This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it
