Younger Member's Report

Happy Spring Younger Members,

I hope you are enjoying the sunshine and growth that comes with this season.

Last month Younger Members focused on renewal and growth by participating in two successful ASCE co-sponsored events.

Buffalo Bayou Trash Bash

On Saturday, March 25th, 15 volunteers, representing seven societies within the Young Member Initiative (YMI) group, participated in the River, Lakes, Bays N’ Bayous Trash Bash at Terry Hershey Park.  This was a citywide volunteer event to cleanup Buffalo Bayou.  Volunteers for our area collected 30 bags of trash and 2 bags of recyclable items.  Thank you to all the volunteers and to SE WEAT for organizing the YMI volunteer group!

IMG Financial: 5 Financial Goal Fundamentals

On Tuesday March 28th, ASCE and SAME had a successful joint event in which IMG financial talked about the 5 fundamentals that every individual needs to know in order to be successful in achieving their financial goals. It was an informative seminar and 20 ASCE YM participated in this event.

This month we have two opportunities to support our local ASCE chapter.

The 31st Annual AIA Sandcastle Competition is scheduled to take place on Saturday, June 3rd at East Beach in Galveston.  ASCE will participate at the event with a team of approximately 65 people from over 16 companies, however we need your support in gathering additional sponsors! Sponsorship is important to ensure we are able to build an amazing sandcastle by covering all team expenses including competition registration, food, and building materials. Please see the flyer and sponsor registration link here with information on how to donate. Sponsorships beyond the April 7th deadline are very much welcome! Thanks to MC2 Main Lane, AmeriTex Pipe, Terracon, and DixiePly for already sponsoring!

Last but not least, we invite you to close out the month with an ASCE and Young Professionals in Transportation happy hour.

YPT and ASCE are going to have a joint happy hour at Kirby Ice House on April 26th, from 5:00-9:00 pm. Food will be provided for those that RSVP. Get details and register here.

We look forward to seeing you at these events and others. As always, keep an eye on the ASCE website, calendar, and Facebook page as new events and activities are being added.

Onward and Upward!!
