YMF Announcements and Update

The purpose of Younger Member Forums (YMF) within ASCE is to direct ASCE's mission for engineers age 35 and younger. YMF offers opportunities to network with peers, learn more about the profession, provide leadership experience and encourage the full professional development of Younger Members. We invite you to join us for the following upcoming events and activities:

Event Summary: Financial Planning Seminar for Young Engineers

On Thursday, September 26, 2013, approximately 25 Younger Members participated in an informal panel discussion lead by members of the Austin Financial Planners Association (FPA). Topics included: Estate Planning, Investments, Retirement Planning, Insurance, and Employee Benefits. Due to enthusiastic feedback, YMF will likely host a similar seminar in 2014!
