President's Message - Welcome to Los Angeles YMF!

CaptureIt is with great excitement that I welcome you to ASCE LA YMF! I am honored and humbled to serve you as the YMF President and to lead such a strong, energetic, and talented group of individuals.  Prior to the beginning of my term, the Board of Directors and I worked together to lay the foundation for a very exciting and productive year. These are five of our major goals for the 2014-2015 FY:

  1. Increase ASCE Membership
  2. Promote ASCE and our Profession in the Community
  3. Give Back to the Community
  4. Improve Professional Development Opportunities
  5. Align our Goals with ASCE Branch, Section, and Society

LA YMF is one of the most well-respected YMF groups in the country because of dedicated young leaders and active members such as yourselves. This is your opportunity to get more involved, give back to the community, build your network, develop your skills, and much more! The Board of Director's commitment to you is to empower the membership to address the interests and needs of the engineering community. So to that end, we need your participation and input!

We look forward to serving the ASCE community of Los Angeles!

Jane Tran, P.E.
ASCE LA YMF President
