The ASCE Pittsburgh Younger Member Forum (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 all those that are young at heart. The YMF allows younger engineers to build their professional network, give back to our communities, and interact socially. We strive to provide business contacts and create a bridge between the Student Chapters and the Section by encouraging students to join ASCE after graduation. In addition, the YMF provides younger members with recognition from their profession and their peers through awards, publication opportunities, and leadership positions.
The Pittsburgh ASCE YMF strives to foster an atmosphere of professional, social, and personal growth by affording young engineers opportunities for success in today's demanding engineering community.
Our long term strategic goals can be found here.
Message from the President:
Welcome to ASCE Pittsburgh Younger Member’s Forum!
If you are new here, Welcome! If you are already a member, Welcome Back! YMF is a fantastic opportunity for younger engineers in the Pittsburgh area to network with others in the engineering community, further their technical knowledge, and become more engaged in ASCE. Whether you are looking for professional development opportunities, want to get more involved in community outreach, or interested in socializing with new friends, YMF has something to offer you!
We have a lot of exciting things happening this year, and I invite you to check them out! See the Calendar of Events page for upcoming YMF events such as monthly General Body Meetings, happy hours, social events, outreach events, and professional development opportunities.
We have had some fun events this year so far, such as a joint softball tournament with ASHE and ESWP, the YMF Oktoberfest brewery crawl at Strange Roots and Grist House, and the annual December Dinner, held at Phipps Conservatory.
Looking ahead, we are working to organize a joint winter competition and the annual spring joint social, both of which are held with other engineering organizations in the region. In addition, we will be hosting several roaming happy hours, located outside of the city, including one at TopGolf. All of these events provide great networking opportunities in a relaxed setting, and the ability to learn more about YMF.
There will also be several upcoming outreach volunteer opportunities, such as Pennsylvania Junior Academy of Science (PJAS), E-Week at the Carnegie Science Center, and the Pittsburgh Regional Science & Engineering Fair.
Our events are open to anyone, so invite your family, friends, and coworkers.
If you have any questions about ASCE YMF or would like more information, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I hope to see you soon!
Lauren M. Dziagwa, P.E.
