YPF Zambia

ABOUT US

The Young Professionals Forum of the Association Consulting Engineers of Zambia (ACEZ) consists of Young Professionals who are passionate about the engineering industry and are interested in ensuring the sustainability and promotion of the profession.

 

A Young Professional (YP) is described by FIDIC as “The Future Leader” who will fill the leadership gap in the next generation. YPs are the Talent – Pipeline of the Consulting engineering industry and thus it is important to keep them engaged within the Consulting engineering community.

 

The initiative need for such a Forum was identified at the FIDIC conference in 2013. The YPF was formed in order to uplift the industry where new ideas could be generated to assist, promote and identify possible problems that the industry may be facing with a view of providing solutions. The forum was also formed to enhance capacity building of Young Professionals and make a platform to create opportunities for knowledge sharing among the professionals and member firms.

 

Like many other countries, Zambia has not been left out. The Steering Committee have worked tirelessly in order to have Young Professionals Forum launched in Zambia. Zambia officially launched its forum on 18th March, 2016.

 

The YPFSC structure currently consists of Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary General & committee members. The YPF is also represented on some of the ACEZ Committees.
