Younger Member Forum
The ASCE Metropolitan Section Younger Member Forum (YMF) has served as a stepping stone for young engineers to develop professionally in the civil engineering industry. What a lot of people don't know is that the group also has served as a link between the ASCE Met Section and ASCE student chapters at local colleges and universities. The ASCE Met Section offers many opportunities that benefit local area students including scholarships, student chapter grants, and volunteers to give talks and judge competitions. The YMF has worked diligently to make sure student chapters are aware of all of the benefits the Met Section has to offer.

Student outreach has been one of the primary YMF objectives for many years. The YMF has planned several events to support student chapters and provide students with information to help them make the transition from school to the civil engineering workforce. Some past events include:

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.
