Joint Meeting at Cooper Union Print E-mail
Younger Member Forum
The YMF, along with ASCE Met Section Past President Anthony Cioffi, participated in a joint meeting with the ASCE student chapter at Cooper Union on October 2, 2014. The purpose of the event was to facilitate interest in the Younger Member Forum. As Cooper Union already had an ASCE meeting scheduled at this time with Tony speaking, it was decided that the YMF could join the event, would bring food and drinks, as well as invite other schools. The event was organized as part of the YMF's Student Outreach program by Bryan Gomes ( This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it ).

In total, 42 people attended the event, 37 of which were students. The attendance was especially strong with Cooper Union, as it was easy for them to attend an event on their own campus. Additionally, several students were present from both NYU Poly and City Tech. Tony Cioffi gave a speech to the students about the ASCE Met Section. After he was done, Kyle Twitchell gave a small speech about the Younger Member Forum. Once the speeches were over, an open discussion was held with students and professors, exchanging information and discussing future events.
