Eastern Region Younger Member Council - Buffalo, NY

Nat Tobey, RI ASCE YMG President, and Katie Scancarello, RI ASCE YMG Treasurer, joined over 400 ASCE leaders on February 9 and 10, at the 2018 Multi-Region Leadership Conference (MRLC) and Eastern Region Younger Member Council (ERYMC) in Buffalo, NY.

Over the course of the two-day conference, participants connected with ASCE President Kristina Swallow, President-Elect Robin Kemper, Region 1 Governor Danielle Spicer, YMG and student chapter members, mentors, and Section leaders from ASCE’s Eastern Region (Regions 1, 2, 4, and 5).

At the ERYMC Business Meeting, Katie and Nat engaged in thoughtful and enthusiastic discussions with fellow younger members on subjects including Raising the Bar, diversity initiatives, ASCE Code of Ethics, and the role of younger members on the ASCE Board of Direction. Highlights of the conference included breakout workshops with fellow YMG leaders, Q and A with ASCE Presidential Officers and Directors, Pre-College Outreach Workshop, and curling at Canalside Buffalo.

Thank you to the Buffalo Section for being such a great host!
