Hello ASCE Philadelphia YMF Community,

This month marked the start of the ASCE Philadelphia Section YMF Board's new term, which I am privileged to lead. We are an all-volunteer board comprised of 23 dedicated and ambitious young professionals from various disciplines, firms, and public agencies. I am especially pleased to welcome our three new faces: Christian Antisell, Cory Bogas, and Kayla Nelson.

As the summer begins, we are planning to stay remote, but in true YMF form, we won't be quiet. Over the past few months, we have been busy developing virtual programming and social events. This year in particular, it will be vital that you stay connected to us through our newsletter and social media for programming, networking opportunities, and educational resources.

If you are not already connected, please follow our accounts!

Take care!

YMF members explain how ASCE benefits them

  • Martin Williams, PE
  • March 29, 2019

As a somewhat reluctant networker, ASCE and especially the YMF have been invaluable to me. They put me in direct interaction with my peers in low stress environments. About 6 years ago I met someone at an ASCE event that recommended a PE exam review course. After taking the course, I passed the exam on my first try. It just goes to show, you never know how valuable a new contact can be. As civil engineers I think it's important to interact with our peers and share our experiences. We should never stop learning and growing, and ASCE fosters an environment for personal and professional growth.
