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.

YMF Holds Pizza Party & Info Session Print E-mail
The YMF hosted our second annual Pizza Party and information session on April 21st, 2016 at One Penn Plaza. ASCE National encourages this event by providing a shipment of materials, including plates, napkins, flyers, brochures, pens, and magazines, so that students and professionals can learn more about the benefits of joining the YMF. This event is geared mostly towards young professionals who are not in the YMF, and for graduating seniors from universities in the area.

Pizza, cookies, and beverages were provided for the students to enjoy while they looked through and took brochures while mostly informal discussion took place. Some of the topics that were discussed included: post-graduation life, the events that the ASCE YMF holds, the structure of the executive board and meetings.
