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.

Annual Joint Student Chapter Kick-off Meeting Print E-mail
On September 17th, Bryan Gomes hosted a joint meeting between members of student ASCE chapters in the NYC area and the Younger Member Forum. The purpose of this meeting was to do some initial planning, get to know each other, network, and start off the new year on the right foot in regards to student outreach efforts. Representatives from Manhattan College, City College of NY, Cooper Union, Columbia, and Stony Brook were all in attendance. During the meeting, attendees discussed organizational changes that would facilitate better planning and more events: every school would have a representative within the YMF, typically someone who has attended the school. Representatives spoke first hand with the student chapter president. It was beneficial to all to meet face to face at this meeting.
