T&DI Younger Members

  • The Committee on Younger Members (CYM) was established by T&DI in 2012 to facilitate and promote the participation of Younger Members (YM’s) (35 and under) in T&DI. 

    The T&DI CYM is tasked with tailoring activities within T&DI toward YM’s interested in transportation and development by:

    • Creating opportunities for involvement and recognition
    • Providing a direct voice to the T&DI Board of Governors
    • Facilitating the participation of YM’s within T&DI committees
    • Incorporating YM-oriented content into T&DI events, conferences, committees and website
    • Organizing additional YM roundtables, technical sessions, and social events
    • Highlighting training programs for leadership
    • Networking with like-minded young professionals
    • Fostering interaction between T&DI YM’s and local T&DI Chapters
    • Promoting T&DI events, conferences, committees and to YM’s via Linkedin

    The CYM holds monthly teleconferences, and generally has two face-to-face meetings each year: one during the TRB Annual Meeting in Washington D.C. and a mid-year meeting. ASCE Members can attend or provide input by contacting Brett Schock.  

    Who is on the CYM? 

    There are five full members who serve on the committee. The committee Chair is a member of ASCE T&DI’s Board of Governors. He was appointed to represent the interests and goals of YM’s at the institute’s highest level. The membership is selected in order to represent all of the transportation and development modes.
