The ASCE Los Angeles Younger Member Forum (LA YMF) provides an opportunity for young civil engineers to become familiar with the civil engineering community and get involved in ASCE early in their careers. The official age range is 35 and younger, but we welcome those that are young at heart. Our goal is to capture the enthusiasm we all had as college students and build a coalition of successful young engineers.
LA YMF allows younger engineers to give back to our communities, interact socially, provide business contacts and create a bridge between the Student Chapters and the Section by encouraging students to join ASCE after graduation. In addition, LA YMF provides younger members with recognition from their professional society and their peers.
We have a very strong group but are always looking for new ideas and new members, please join us. Consider joining one of our active committees or attend one of our events to see how our group can help you.
To facilitate a voice to younger members' issues and concerns at the national and grass root levels. As a result, it will promote participation, increase membership activities, and encourage students to transfer to younger member status to secure the future of LA YMF and the Section. Increase participation from the membership in public issues will foster involvement of younger members and raised media attention in the public policy arena.
The continued support of our sponsors, members and friends is vital to the advancement of our group. Your support has allowed us to continue the promotion of civil engineering throughout our communities, our future generations and amongst our colleagues. Every year your support allows us to continue running events such as our annual student scholarship awards banquet, K-12 student outreach visits, community service, technical presentations, Job Fair, etc. as well as provide Scholarships to our local students. Thank you for your continued support.
