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.

 
Younger Member Perspective: Government Relations and Millennials Print E-mail
ASCE's New York State contingent attends a reception at the Cannon Caucus Room during the 2014 Legislative Fly-In.
By Peter S. Mancuso, P.E.

When generational theorists describe millennials, they describe a set of individuals identifiable by their indecision and pluralism. It is no secret that adults in their twenties and thirties identify less and less with any one culture, religion, and of course, political party. On top of that, fewer and fewer millennials trust that the government can actually achieve what it is meant to do. It is unsurprising, then, that ASCE younger members do not find themselves attracted to government relations.

As described in ASCE's 2013 Report Card for America's Infrastructure, there is a serious need to invest in our nation's infrastructure to meet the current and future needs of society. However, there is a large gap between the current estimated funding and the amount needed to raise America's infrastructure to a state of good repair. In order to address this discrepancy, the engineering community has been tasked with finding design and construction cost saving measures and alternative funding methods for infrastructure improvements.
