Younger Member Group (YMG)

The Younger Member Group (YMG) offers its members opportunities to establish professional contacts through networking, develop their careers, and attend fun social and volunteering events. We also provide a bridge between student chapters and the IL Section. Throughout the year, the YMG organizes monthly dinner meetings on a variety of topics, social events such as trivia nights and happy hours, volunteering opportunities with local food pantries and STEM groups, hosts joint events with other professional organizations in the Chicago area, and organizes a semi-yearly PE exam review course.
