BHC Rhodes Hosts the YMG Monthly Meeting

BHC Rhodes hosted the Younger Members Group at their office located at the corner of College Boulevard and Metcalf Avenue. We had over 45 young professionals in attendance, with several new members ready to learn more about Kansas City ASCE. We thank BHC Rhodes for allowing us to watch some March Madness in their TVs, play ping pong and shuffle board and providing raffle giveaways!

The KC ASCE YMG appreciates the opportunity to participate with BHC Rhodes and other engineering firms which continuously support our group! We look forward to partner up with another engineering firm in the Fall!

February Meeting at FUEL Bar & Grill in OP

There were over 20 YMG members who got together at FUEL for some drinks this week. It had been a while since the last monthly meeting in December, so there were a lot of topics to discuss, and all were updated. Each board member of the YMG shared some of their upcoming events, and there were around four new faces in the crowd.

Kansas City Officers at CRYMC!

Four Kansas City Younger Member Officers attended the Central Region Younger Member Council in Chicago on January 15th-16th 2016. During this annual leadership conference, all section and branch leaders of ASCE from Regions 3, 6 and 7 gather together. Our officers were able to exchange successful practices with other younger member group officers and gain new perspectives on activities that will benefit our KC group. This Younger Member Council in Chicago was a resounding success as two of our younger members were recognized for their dedication to ASCE and the profession: Stephen Stinger was recognized as an Outstanding Young Civil Engineer in the Private Sector, and Mike Winckler was recognized as an Outstanding Young Civil Engineer in the Public Sector.

We are very excited to have them as part of our vibrant younger member group! We are looking forward to participating in the next Younger Member Council next February 3rd-4th, 2017 in Minneapolis. This is a great networking opportunity within our profession, and the KC YMG appreciates the full support of the KC Section. Please let Ozzy Bravo (obravo@terracon.com) know if you would be interested in attending next year.
