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.

New York's infrastructure is the essential system that keeps the state functioning, but includes many assets which are becoming obsolete for future societal needs, as reflected in the 2015 New York State report card. As infrastructure ages, it needs to be upgraded and maintained to work for a community that will use new methods of commuting, new technologies for living, be affected by a changing environment, and be impacted by more extreme forces of nature.
