" We are delighted to launch a Young Members Group here in the North America Branch to reinforce our commitment to early-career professional development and inclusiveness.  We look forward to using the global YMG platform to enhance the value to early-career practitioners and students of engaging with the Institute and Branch.  We anticipate that the YMG will create a great platform not only for generating fresh and creative ideas for future Branch initiatives but also for moving young practitioners into meaningful leadership roles.”
