What is the Phoenix YMF All About?
Our Mission Statement - The AzSCE Phoenix Branch, Younger Member Forum promotes and enhances the civil engineering profession within the public community, by providing younger members and students with information and opportunities for professional and leadership development, networking, educational outreach, and community service, in a social environment.
Wine Tasting with SWE:
There's still time to RSVP for our annual wine tasting with SWE! The event will be May 21, 2013 at 6 pm at Su Vino Winery in Old Town Scottsdale. The cost is $10 for five wine tastings. This event is always a great time. Please RSVP to Jessica Dresang at JDresang@carollo.com.
Western Region Younger Member Council 2014:
This conference will be in Phoenix in January 2014 and the Phoenix YMF is responsible for organizing a number of activities. If you're interested in showcasing your firm, projects, and your city, start thinking of technical tours and other opportunities to put Phoenix on display! Please contact Chad Drago at (email@example.com) if you would like to contribute to this exciting opportunity as a volunteer or firm sponsor.
This month’s meeting is on Tuesday, May 28th, at 5:30pm at Half Moon Sports Grill in central Phoenix near 20th St and Highland. At this month’s meeting Julian Dresang, a past YMF President and engineer for the City of Tempe, will be facilitating an interactive personality test. Come find out what your “color” is. Maybe a blue or a green? Perhaps an orange or a gold? We will discuss what your personality means about you and how you can use this information to improve your relationships, both personal and professional.

Educational outreach for the months of October and November was at Brunson Le e Elementary. In October, Chuck Davis, Frederick Tack, and Ryan Circello worked with the 5th/6th grade students to learn about towers. The students participated by providing examples of towers they have seen before and by constructing towers out of two pieces of newspaper. The students enjoyed competing to see who could build the tallest tower and really enjoyed the last step: demolition!
AZ Water vs. ASCE vs. ITES Kickball Game!
Every year AZ Water and ASCE get together for a little friendly competition, grub, suds and kickball! This year ITES will also be in on the fun. We played Saturday, November 3rd. Everyone had a blast!
ASCE Phoenix Branch Survey:
The Phoenix Branch Board will continue to provide a wide range of topics for our luncheon presentations, topics that are relevant for all areas within Civil Engineering, as well as any other hot topics that occur in the Phoenix metro area and in our State. In some instances, we could accommodate and tailor our presentations to what YOU are most interested on, for which, we would like you to fill out this very short survey (1 min. max), thus we can assess some trends. Please click on this Link to fill out the survey, or type in your browser this address: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/LCNCCK7 . We truly appreciate your time and commitment to ASCE, and we want to make sure you get the most out of your membership. Thanks!
