President Report - January 2020
Recap of Recent Events
The biggest event in January was the WRYMC in San Francisco. YMF sent 4 representatives to the event and we had a great time there, like always.
“Hell ya, of course we have tech tours in Utah”, our President-elect, Faramarz, did a fantastic presentation during the YMC Business Meeting. I want to express my sincere thanks to Faramarz, all my Board Members, YMF previous Board Members, and Region 8, Section, Branch leaders for supporting us on MRLC/WRYMC 2022, with all your help we successfully brought the conference to Utah in 2022!!! Please visit our website for the promotion video.
For the first time ever, we provided a great social opportunity to everyone from Southern Idaho to Utah, including all leaders, Student members, and their families!! We used to do a small group dinner during the WRYMC but this time, with the help of Region 8 Governor, Matt Roblez, we made it a huge social event for everyone. After all positive comments, we decided to do it every year. With great honor, current ASCE National President, Guna, and President-elect, Jean-Louis, joined our dinner. And most importantly, big, big thanks to McNeil Engineering for the sponsorship.
Our representatives attended the Banquet as well, great food, great people, we really enjoy this, looking forward to hosting it in Salt Lake.
Earlier this month, we went to the University of Utah and attended the resume workshop. We are so glad that we can help Civil Engineering students on their resumes. Special thanks to Matt Moriarty and Katherine Colburn from ASCE Utah Section. And we appreciate University of Utah Student Chapter to put together this event.
In the end of January, we did a social event at Quarters Arcade Games Bar. Thanks for joining us!!
