Following Gary's Legacy

By: Josue Vaglienty, P.E. About 10 years ago I attended my first ASCE YMF meeting in a conference room at Diaz-Yourman & Associates in Santa Ana. There were about a dozen other younger engineers in attendance who seemed energetic and vibrant to be planning all sorts of events – social mixers, seminars, community service events, and technical tours to name a few. There was one individual in particular who took the time to explain the whole purpose of YMF to me – all of it! I asked a lot of questions, but the end result was inevitable – I wanted in!
