YMF Hosts Student Pizza Party Print E-mail
Younger Member Forum
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.
