AIPPI strongly encourages its Young Members to participate in the work of the Association. In recent years, AIPPI has reached out to its Young Members, launching the Young AIPPI Forum during the 2017 AIPPI World Congress in Sydney.
Apart from the educational aspect, the Young AIPPI Forum also provides a special space for Young Members to network with their peers, share experience and to build closer relationship with other members in their age group.
AIPPI wishes to explore more ways to interact with Young Members outside of the annual event during the Congress. To this end, it was proposed to create an advisory committee comprised of Young Members themselves to help steer initiatives for their peers.
