The ASCE New Jersey Section and the ASCE North Jersey Branch Younger Member Group are proud to serve as hosts for the 2017 Multi-Region Leadership Conference (MRLC) at the Marriott Hotel in Newark, New Jersey on January 20-21, 2017.  The conference this year will include the Workshop for Section and Branch Leaders (WSBL), the Workshop for Student Chapter Leaders (WSCL) and Eastern Regional Younger Members Conference (ERYMC). 

We look forward to the participation of delegates from ASCE Regions 1, 2, 4 and 5, representing 23 states, Washington D.C., and Puerto Rico! This meeting is a great opportunity for the best and the brightest young civil engineers from across the Eastern United States to come together and improve themselves as leaders in the profession, in ASCE, and in their communities.   Participants will also have the opportunity to interact with ASCE Society-level Leaders and Officers, offering insight on current strategic initiatives and the future direction of ASCE. Over 300 attendees are expected at the MRLC!
