The Younger Member Group (YMG) is a BSCES technical group that serves college students and young engineers emerging in the professional workforce. YMG’s mission statement is “to foster the professional growth, ethical awareness, and technical competence of the Section’s younger members. The group organizes and encourages community outreach, supports engineering students at local colleges and universities, and encourages membership and participation in ASCE and BSCES committees, institute chapters, technical groups, and other activities.”

Annual Billiards Tournament
As we entered a “new normal” phase of the COVID-19 pandemic, one of YMG’s primary goals for this year was to safely transition to our historically strong slate of in-person events. Events hosted by the YMG occurred on average about once per month, and are a mix of social/networking events, technical events, student-oriented events, and volunteering/community service events. In the past year, YMG has hosted the following events:
YMG Holiday Party at Sacco Bowling/American Flatbread
Upcoming events to look out for include:
Within the YMG, there is also the Student Chapter Committee which serves as a link between BSCES and 10 Massachusetts college and university ASCE Student Chapters. The committee is comprised of a chair and at least one liaison supporting each of the 10 chapters. The Student Chapter Committee provides support by relaying information regarding scholarships, valuable networking opportunities, and student-oriented resources to help promote the academic careers and professional development of Student Members. YMG and their Student Chapter Committee’s goal for the immediate future is to continue fostering these relationships with the student chapters, and to provide additional support through student-geared events!
YMG at the Parcel 12 Site Tour
The YMG hosts hybrid executive committee meetings the first Tuesday of every month from September through May to discuss past and upcoming events, to share student chapter and community service updates, and to share updates from BSCES and its other technical groups and institute chapters. Currently, over a dozen young professionals from a variety of disciplines within the civil engineering industry serve on this committee. All younger members who are interested in joining our group are welcome to attend these meetings during which you can meet committee members and expand your network!
