Happy February, Younger Members!
In this newsletter: ERYMC 2023 Recap, February Bowling Event Registration, ASCE Maryland Career Fair, and More!

The 2023 ERYMC was a blast! Our YMG President Sheharyar, Secretary Alyssa, and Membership Chair Moses attended the event in Charlotte, NC. The conference was a meeting of young civil engineering leaders of the Eastern Region of ASCE. Sheharyar, Alyssa, and Moses learned a lot about leadership, professional development, current civil engineering trends, the future of ASCE, and plenty of YMG-related planning tips and tricks. We can't wait to take the skills and knowledge of the ERYMC and make the YMG even better!

Aaaaaaand... congratulations to our YMG Secretary Alyssa, who won the 2023 ASCE "Outstanding Younger Member in Community Activities" award! This is the first National award that an Younger Member of ASCE Maryland has won! Alyssa's dedication to community service and volunteering made her the best candidate for the award. We are so proud of Alyssa for putting ASCE Maryland on the map!
