Dear YMF Members,

Yikes... is it the end of May already?! I cannot even begin to express how fast this past year has gone while serving as your YMF President, but I guess as the saying goes, "time flies when you're having fun". As my presidency comes to an end, I would like to share a recap of the past year (from my shoes of course). The past year was a busy one as we organized over 30 events which were all well attended, and we continue to expand our K-12 reach, as we impacted almost 1,000 students over the past year. In my opinion these types of things are integral to the future success of the civil engineering profession. At this year's ERYMC Awards banquet, which took place in Orlando, FL, the Philly YMF took home four of the seven Younger Member Council Awards which is amazing! Lastly, I cannot forget about the continuing success of our largest event, the Annual Winter Social. With the help of our donors and members who attended the event, we continue to raise our contributions to local non-profit organizations and STEM education initiatives. It is all these things and more which make me proud to not only lead this organization but be part of it.

I want everyone to know what an honor and pleasure it has been to serve as your YMF President the past year. The relationships and leadership skills I've garnered over the past year have been the biggest highlight of my career thus far. Looking back to 8+ years ago when I first joined the YMF board; I would honestly say that getting involved with the YMF board has been the best decision I've ever made. I look forward to remaining involved with the future YMF board by advising decisions and encouraging YMF involvement.

With thanks,

Eammon Farley

YMF members explain how ASCE benefits them

As a somewhat reluctant networker, ASCE and especially the YMF have been invaluable to me. They put me in direct interaction with my peers in low stress environments. About 6 years ago I met someone at an ASCE event that recommended a PE exam review course. After taking the course, I passed the exam on my first try. It just goes to show, you never know how valuable a new contact can be. As civil engineers I think it's important to interact with our peers and share our experiences. We should never stop learning and growing, and ASCE fosters an environment for personal and professional growth.
