Young Professionals’ Network

AITPM’s young professional members ensure the industry’s sustainability and we are commitment to encouraging their active engagement with our sector.

Young professionals, up to 35 years, represent our most recent entrants into the profession.

These members are eager to acquire traffic and transport skills and AITPM has a lot to offer through existing activities such as Technical Forums or targeted activities including social/networking opportunities and professional learning. Accordingly AITPM launched the Young Professional Network (YPN) in each state coordinated through the National Council. The establishment of the YPN in 2012 and continual provisions for learning and development represents a key action of the AITPM’s Strategic Plan 2013-2017.

You can connect with the YPN via our Facebook page.

Young Professionals at the National Conference

Each year AITPM encourages students to participate in the National Conference by way of presenting a paper or by attendance. The National Conference is a fantastic opportunity to hear from industry experts on real life projects, to learn about the latest industry developments and to network with like minded people establishing a professional network.

Through the Young Professional Award, the Institute also offers the opportunity for one first year transport graduate, or final year student in field of study that contains transport elements, from each state to attend the annual National Conference.

Further details on the annual Young Professional award are available here.
