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 Hosts Student Pizza Party Print E-mail
On April 30, 2015, the YMF held a Pizza Party for student chapters with the intention of facilitating interest in ASCE and the YMF. All of the participating students were involved with their own ASCE Student Chapters (many were e-board members and highly involved), and already knew about many of the benefits of ASCE. However, there were many things the students learned about including future benefits of ASCE enrollment, PDH credits, continuing education, conferences, site visits, and much more.

The event was held at Parsons Brinckerhoff's office located at One Penn Plaza. Pizza and drinks were provided. Students were greeted as they entered the room. The YMF members began the meeting with introductions around the room of both YMF members and  students. Then YMF members described the benefits of ASCE in detail, and addressed questions and concerns that the students had about joining the YMF. Many students stayed after the presentation to talk to the YMF members and other students.

432 Park Avenue Construction Site Tour Print E-mail
Some say that it is lonely at the top, but the ASCE Met Section's younger members discovered that it is also very cold. To celebrate National Engineers Week on February 24, 2015, Chris Shirley, of WSP, led a YMF technical tour of 432 Park Avenue, a super slim building under construction. Reaching a height of 1,396 feet, 432 Park Avenue is one of the tallest residential buildings in the world. At the top, it felt as if it were 20 degrees colder than at the base of the building.
