Sponsor an ASCE Event!


ASCE LA YMF provides more than 100 membership events a year, including technical tours & presentations, community service events, STEM outreach events for K-12 schools, professional development workshops for engineering university students, and more! We also give out scholarships and host multiple major annual events with attendances up to 700 people! This year, these award-winning events include Los Angeles Engineers Week (E-Week), High School Popsicle Stick Bridge Competition (PSBC), Student Night & Job Fair (SNJF), and the Western Region Younger Member Conference (WRYMC 2017). Membership fees and allocations have consistently only covered about 10% of our costs, and the rest comes from the fundraising efforts of our dedicated volunteers and the generosity of our corporate sponsors.
