President's Message

Welcome to the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Los Angeles Younger Member Forum (LA YMF) website! We are a very involved, fun group of young professional engineers throughout the greater LA area. We help to promote the civil engineering profession and how it can aid our community. Whether your interests include K-12 outreach, government affairs, professional development, social networking, or community service, we'll have something for you! Our main goal this ASCE year is to make a positive impact, so please join us!


Please feel free to join us at any of our upcoming events especially our monthly board meeting held on the second Tuesday of each month. This is a great way to meet our Board and hear about all of our upcoming and recent events. Also, please be sure to sign up for our weekly newsletter to stay informed on all the events we do!
