Congratulations to Eng. Harold M. Chibwe who has been nominated to sit on the GAMA Young Professional Forum (YPF) steering committee. Indeed, it is with great pleasure and an honour to have the YPF in Zambia under ACEZ. The iniative need for such a Forum was identified at the FIDIC conference in 2013 in Barcelona, Spain.

YPF consists of Young Professionals who are qualifed in the field of engineering disciplines and are currently practicing as consultants and are interested in ensuring the sustainability and promotion of the profession.
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 enchance capacity building of Young Professionals and make a platform to create opportunities for knowledge sharing among the professionals and member firms.
The YPF believes that, engineering does not only involve solving problems, rather it entails a wholesome approach towards improving the standard of living of the fellow beings.
