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.
Message from the President
“An engineer is hired for her or his technical skills, fired for poor people skills, and promoted for leadership and management skills” as stated by Russell and Yao (1997). Our goal as the ASCE Pittsburgh Section Younger Member Forum (ASCE-YMF) is to provide opportunities for young civil engineers to develop these skills and thrive professionally, while having fun and making new connections. We offer over 25 events per year ranging from technical presentations, to networking socials, to outreach and community service so you’re sure to find something of interest. If you are under the age of 36 and looking for a great way to get involved in your profession, please come check out our events!
- Linda Kaplan, PE, 2014-2015 YMF President
