The fib Presidium has approved the creation of an fib Young Members Group. All members of the Presidium have high expectations for the development of this group.
The fib thinks that it is crucial that young professionals are given the opportunity to fully participate in the activities of the organisation. They are welcome to participate in commissions and task groups and to become part of the decision bodies. However, young members do not actively participate in the development of documents and in the decisions of the fib.
The Young Members Group aims to build a framework that will allow young engineers to participate in the activities of the association and to bring their ideas to the working groups and the decision bodies.
Young engineers can bring new ideas and new ways of working to the fib.
