Welcome to the ASCE Younger Members Group

Welcome to the official website of the Kansas City Section of ASCE Younger Member’s Group (YMG). The YMG is deeply rooted in community service events, social events, and professional development functions that benefit ASCE Members 35 and younger in the Kansas City Metro area.

We thank the continual support of the Kansas City Section board members. Without their support, we could not and would not be as influential to the Kansas City residents in our community service endeavors.

We look forward to continuing a pattern of growth for the Kansas City YMG. Kansas City YMG members are encouraged to bring a friend or coworker to the monthly meetings or to one of our numerous service projects, other social activities, and professional development opportunities. With your help, not only will our membership continue to grow, but we will be able to better serve the residents of Kansas City. With larger numbers, we will be able to reach more students in area schools, help the disadvantaged with our community service events, and provide more functions for our members.

Welcome to the Younger Member’s Group!
