The ASCE Foundation helps fund ASCE Leadership programs that support Students’, Younger Members’ and Members’ professional and personal development at every stage of their careers.
In 2018, your generous contributions to the Foundation supported the Multi-Region Leadership Conferences, Younger Member Leadership Symposium and Diversity and Inclusion activities.
These events held across the country gather Society leaders at different stages of their careers – students, Younger Members, and Section/Branch officers – to compare notes and develop new skills that will enhance both their careers and Society work.
The Multi-Region Leadership Conferences (MRLCs) are two-day conferences across the country that gather Society leaders at different stages of their careers – students, Younger Members, and Section/Branch officers – to develop new skills that will enhance both their careers and Society work. The conferences include the Workshop for Section and Branch Leaders (WSBL), regional Younger Member Council meetings, and the Workshop for Student Chapter Leaders.
During the MRLCs, the Foundation facilitates Student Focus Sessions on finance and fundraising. The Foundation shares fundraising skills and lessons learned to build confidence in students. Donations to the Leadership Fund support the MRLCs.
The ASCE Foundation Board approved grants of $1,000 to each Section celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2020. Section Centennial celebrations commemorate the history of the Section, sometimes through publication of a Centennial book. They also bring members together though conferences, workshops, dinner meetings and networking events.
Younger Member Leadership Symposium (YMLS) is a three-day experiential leadership workshop open to all ASCE Younger Members, aged 35 and under. The YMLS is hosted by the ASCE Committee on Younger Members and focuses on early-career professional skills development to help ASCE Younger Members succeed and lead in the workplace. Tours and special events during the weekend offer additional networking with peers from around the country.
The 2019 YMLS events are made possible by your contributions to the ASCE Foundation on Giving Tuesday 2018, which included a generous matching gift from 1852 Society and Founder Club member, Robert P. Wadell, P.E., MSCE, F.ASCE.
