Welcome back, YMF!
This summer has been busy for the Younger Member Forum! We hosted WRYMC 2022 in July and had great participation from everyone in the valley. Thank you to all our attendees, volunteers, and sponsors that made this professional development opportunity possible. Our chapter has accepted the chance to host WRYMC again in 2024, so if you missed our adventure in Park City we will look forward to seeing you in Salt Lake City in 2024!
Many attendees of WRYMC expressed interest in getting involved with the Utah YMF board after the conference. Alex Jondal has joined as the Social Media Chair, Julie Hansen has joined as the Communications Chair, Alexander Yanez has joined as the K-12 Outreach Coordinator, and Luz Davila has joined our Events Committee.
Our K-12 Outreach relaunch has had a great reception. Alex will meet with the Jordan School District STEM Committee on Sept. 14th to discuss local opportunities for volunteering. A new Code Ninjas city planning course for middle school students has also invited us to be volunteer judges for their final designs. We are also looking forward to Engineering Day at the University of Utah in November.
Allison Valencia has accepted our invitation to be the YMF President Elect. She will be in charge of the PE Review courses this fall. We face the challenge of adapting the PE Review to work with the new Computer Based Testing (CBT) format of the exam.
Looking forward, this month we will have our Fall BBQ in Sugarhouse Park. We will meet at the Big Field Pavilion for food and games from 6:30-8:00 pm. We hope to see you all there!
