On 22 March 2019, CIArb Zambia launched its Young Members Group (YMG) initiative during the inaugural “ADR Open Day" at Radisson Blue Hotel in Lusaka. The event was numerously attended by the representatives of Lusaka University, Cavendish University, University of Zambia as well as young professionals from various fields such as banking, legal, engineering, accounting, judiciary and others.
Young Members Group is a Special Interest Group of CIArb which was re-launched a few years ago to support the involvement of young people who are below the age of 40 years in the dispute resolution community. The group is intended to include other professionals of the same age group. The YMG gives young people an opportunity to positively contribute to the development of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) while advancing their professional profile. CIArb YMG Zambia is part of the wider network of YMG global with more than 3000 members in about 90 countries. Read more on YMG here .

Vice Chairperson - Shapola Mutyoka
Honorary Secretary- Mbonela Newa Chilando
Honorary Treasurer - Janet Mwaba
Young professionals and students who are interested in growing their career in Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) are all welcome to join this dynamic and fast-growing movement of young champions.
