President's Message

As I step in to the President role to further the success of our ASCE Philly YMF, I’d like to continue where our Past President, Kevin Brown, left off. #ASCEMadeMe.

The reason this phrase resonates with me is that it describes the results of being involved with ASCE and my journey so far. Throughout this journey, I’ve been fortunate to hold various board positions including organizing social events, coordinating the CivE club, and managing our budget, and have been extensively involved with professional development events and outreach opportunities. Through this involvement, I can confidently say that I am a much better friend and colleague, but most important, my career at this point has projected further than if I had not become involved with the YMF. Today, I strongly encourage you all to do the same.

As President of the ASCE Philly YMF, I could not ask for a more dedicated Board or Past President advisors who have held this position before me. It has been a privilege for me to learn from many of our Board members and grow with them in my professional career.

This year, the YMF Board will continue to provide our members and local engineers with impactful outreach opportunities and offer more technical presentations for many of the pioneer engineering projects happening in our City.

I look forward to meeting more of the local engineers this year. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have questions about ways to become involved.


Nha Truong, PE, PMP

YMF members explain how ASCE benefits them

After moving to Philadelphia from Florida, I was looking for a community of engineers to join and decided to attend some YMF events, since I had been heavily involved in my college chapter. I was immediately impressed by the number and variety of ways that the Philadelphia YMF connects engineers to each other and to the local community. Since joining the Philadelphia YMF, I have not only expanded my local network of engineering professionals, but I have had the privilege to volunteer at several service events, including roadway and trail cleanups. In addition to serving the local community, these events have been a fun way to meet other ASCE members who have a passion for service and come from a variety of civil engineering disciplines. Whether you are most comfortable meeting people at networking dinners, socials or service events, the Philadelphia YMF offers a wide variety of opportunities to get involved with the ASCE chapter that allow you to grow your professional network and serve the community.
