YMF & UT Student Chapter Announcements and Updates


Younger Member Forum (YMF) had a successful month, including a speaking event at UT-Austin's ASCE Student Chapter meeting and the IECD Meetup.

ASCE YMF welcomes and encourages young engineers to become actively involved. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the purpose of YMF, the group's goal is to direct ASCE's mission for engineers age 35 and younger. YMF Austin offers opportunities to network with peers, learn more about the profession, provide leadership experience and encourage the full professional development of Younger Members (YMs). If you are interested in learning more about ASCE YMF, please contact me at LOLeary@Geosyntec.com.
