Younger Member Group
The ASCE MN Younger Member Group (YMG) is open to anyone age 35 or younger. Our goals are to host events that allow you to make connections in the civil engineering profession, provide opportunities to grow your careers, and develop leaders in the communities where we live and work.
We hope to see you, your coworker, significant other, friend, etc. at any and ALL of our upcoming YMG Events! If you’ve never been to a YMG event and you are looking for a reason to do so, your next event registration on us if you mention this article! (Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to redeem your free registration.)
We’ve had a busy summer! We kicked off the summer at our second annual “Friday After College” networking event with YM’s and students. Friday After College had more than 50 attendees-most of them recent graduates and new to ASCE. Attendees enjoyed games, networking, and pizza near the first stop on our Light Rail tour through campus and into downtown Minneapolis. The laughter and networking bingo kept the group together through three stops on the Green Line.
In August, we had a blast at our YMG’s 5th Annual ASCE BBQ and food drive
at Boom Island Park. It was another successful event with awesome food, great conversation and fun yard games, all with a view of the Minneapolis skyline and blue skies. We were fortunate to raise 59 pounds of food along with $170 in food shelf donations! The yard games were all built in-house at previous YMG team- building events and included Bags, Connect 4, Kubb, Ladder Golf, Timber Toss, Giant Jenga, Washers, and Dice.
