Young Professionals

The Young Professionals is a group designed specifically for the promotion of young people within our industry, and to address issues facing young spatial professionals. The group is open to any full-time student, or anyone aged 35 years and younger. It has a proven track record leadership development for those involved, and aims at creating a fun environment in which students and professionals from across the commissions may come together and network.


The SSSI YPs hopes to realise its vision through the delivery of services to Young Spatial Professionals in four main service areas:


  • Networking;
  • Career;
  • Education and Information; and,
  • Recognition and Representation.


A range of activities and programmes to address these service areas have been developed by the SSSI YPs. These may be uniformly applied across the regions such as mentoring programmes, or developed within a region to address local needs, such as supporting spatial professionals in remote areas.
