ITA has just created (during the General Assembly 2014 in Iguassu, Brazil) a Young Members Group. 

The aim of the group is to 

•       Provide a technical networking platform within ITA for young professionals and students

•       Bridge the gap between generations and to network across all experience levels in the industry

•       Awareness of the tunnelling and underground space industry to new generations

•       Provide young professionals and students with a voice in the ITA, including the Working Groups

•       To look after the next generation of tunnelling professionals and to pass on the aims and ideals of the ITA

•       For the moment the main activities planned are as follows:

•       Arrange events for international networking, exchange of experience and technology between young professionals and students

•       Inspire young generation to join and actively participate inside ITA

•       Encourage member nations in establishing domestic YM groups for each individual ITA Member Nation
