MAS Urbanists are early to mid-career professionals who care about the future of New York. For over ten years, MAS has empowered Urbanists by providing the opportunity to connect with one another and engage with the critical issues that concern New York’s livability and resilience. In addition to receiving invitations to all MAS member events, Urbanist members receive invitations to special events, tours and programs where they are able to meet and socialize with like-minded young urban enthusiasts, while educating themselves on the core issues of MAS. Urbanist members come from a wide array of industries and professions – what brings them together is a shared passion for New York and commitment to making it a better place to live, work and play.
