As a means of fostering individual Younger Member participation in Society activities, the ASCE Committee on Younger Members (CYM) developed a program to help Sections and Branches recognize those employers who encourage their young engineers to get involved in ASCE activities. Special recognition goes to those organizations that exhibit exemplary support evidenced by efforts such as by providing a model for involvement through company wide participation in local, regional and national ASCE activities, encouraging and supporting Younger Members to attend ASCE meetings and seminars, encouraging Younger Members to prepare articles for publication in ASCE professional and technical journals, and assisting in the payment of local and national dues. We would like to congratulate CH2M Hill on winning the 2012 ASCE CYM Employer Recognition Award for exemplary support of young engineer involvement in ASCE activities. Kristin Brickman accepted the award on behalf of CH2M Hill at our April, 2013 luncheon.
