ASCE Orange County Branch was established in 1953 and celebrated its 60th Anniversary in 2013! ASCE Orange County Younger Member Forum (OC YMF) was previously a part of the Metropolitan Los Angeles Younger Member Forum. In 1999, OC YMF started the process of establishing an Orange County Younger Member Forum. We were officially recognized by Society in 2003. Many have served and helped establish and laid the foundation for the excellent Younger Member group we have today. We’d like to extend a warm Thank You to those who have served as Presidents of the American Society of Civil Engineers, Orange County Younger Member Forum.
