The trio of ASCE Multi-Region Leadership Conferences is an annual ASCE tradition for students, Younger Members, and Section and Branch leaders.

Members develop leadership strategies, compare their local experiences, and have a good time catching up with old friends and making new connections.

This year, Los Angeles, Newark, NJ, and Minneapolis hosted the respective events, and if the social media posts are any indication, ASCE members enjoyed the experience.


This honor has meant the world to me. Thank you SO SO much to the American Society of Civil Engineers for recognizing me this weekend for our work and service that our ASCE-YMF has done in Philadelphia – last year we were able to reach out to over 1,300 K-12 students interested in being an engineer one day – thank you to ASCE's Eastern Regional Younger Member Council for the recognition and realizing so much passion that went into our efforts to empower future engineers and minds to #DREAMBIGGER than ever before. Thank you especially to my colleagues and all of my fellow Philly-YMF board members, our student chapter ASCE members who I am so thankful to know, and especially to all of our YMF volunteers who made this year in outreach possible. Thank you to every civil engineer who has welcomed me into this new field and ASCE community and to those I have looked up to personally as a mentor, and especially those who I look up to and call my friends. This award could have been awarded to any younger member from Maine and upstate New York to Florida and it's such an honor. Thank you thank you from the bottom of my heart. So, make sure to volunteer with us during the upcoming Engineers Week in Philadelphia and I look forward to many more adventures and to more of dreaming big! Here I'm standing with ASCE President-Elect Kristina Swallow and ASCE Executive Director Thomas Smith. Kristina, it has been such a wonderful pleasure to get to know you over this past year. It meant so much to receive this from a leader who took time to get to know me. Thank you for your service and for being such a dynamic role model and leader for so many of us entering the profession. Thank you! #ASCE #MRLC17 #ERYMC @PHILLYYMF !! Also, #nofilter #ASCEmademe
