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!

2016 ASCE Golf Tournament

The 11th Annual ASCE Golf Tournament benefiting Missouri Make-A-Wish occurred on Friday, August 12, 2016 and was a huge success. Through the generosity of many Kansas City companies and under the leadership of this year’s Golf Tournament Chair, Emily Loiselle, the Kansas City YMG was able to present the Missouri Chapter of Make-a-Wish with a $13,250 check at the end of the tournament. These funds will go towards the wishes of two special Kansas City boys: Aiden and Abram.

A big thank you to all those who came out to play and volunteered their time to make this year’s golf tournament a success! We appreciate the support of the many companies who sponsored this year’s tournament, including our Diamond sponsors, Coreslab Structures and Burns & McDonnell.

We look forward to 2017’s tournament!

ASB Bridge Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

The Kansas City Section culminated a decade-long project in dedicating the ASB Bridge and cutting the ribbon on the counterweight memorial site. The counterweights display fascinating engineering information as well as the plaque commemorating the bridge as an ASCE National Historic Landmark. Many families and ASCE members were in attendance on a beautiful morning where the YMG set up a demonstration bridge, a historic speaker told stories, and the project was glorified by many speakers. The keynote was given by the ASCE President-Elect Dr. Norma Jean Mattei. Food was served, and Kansas City engineering was a spectacle for a few solid hours.
