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!

ASCE YMG Tours A. Zahner Company

Last Wednesday 25 YMG professionals enjoyed visiting the office and fabrication shop of the A. Zahner Company. All were thoroughly impressed at the eccentric design and intricate details faced with every project. After the tour, the group enjoyed apps and drinks at the Cashew. This was a great opportunity for some of our YMG folks located further north in KC to join in the action. We hope to see you next time!

Last Thursday, November 12th, our School Outreach Chairs organized 8 volunteers to participate at the annual STEM in the GYM in Raytown High School in Missouri. During the event, KC ASCE had over 150 students engaged through the four tables of activities. One table included KC ASCE’s bridge display, another had information about civil engineering, and two tables were dedicated to our shake table activity building towers out of starbursts. We look forward to a busy January and February with many outreach events!

South Lawrence Trafficway Presentation

On Wednesday October 7th, we had a great turnout for the professional development event presenting the South Lawrence Trafficway – West Leg Study. The presentation highlighted possible design alternatives for upgrading K-10 from a two-lane expressway to a four-lane freeway in an area with tight curves and limited right-of-way. Thank you Jesse Kuhlen and Ryan Robinson from HNTB for giving the presentation. We also thank the Kansas Section YMG for teaming up with us, and everyone else who came to see the presentation!

YMG Kickoff Meeting a Success!

We had our annual ASCE Younger Members Group Kickoff Meeting at Waldo Pizza! The over 60 members in attendance enjoyed the pizza and drinks. After eating, the Officers spoke about their committees and upcoming events. We had KC Section members in attendance, including President Mr. Tom Jacobs, as well as several student leaders from the UMKC student chapter. Hopefully we’ll see you all again at our upcoming events: our bi-annual Highway Cleanup on September 19th and the Mizzou Tailgate in Columbia on October 3rd!
