AGI provides a collective voice for the geospatial industry and supports members throughout their careers and as their businesses grow. However, we want to do more to help our younger members, early in their careers.
By establishing a support network and a programme of events targeted at the needs of Early Career Professionals, we would aim to provide them with:
We are working closely with our colleagues in The Royal Geographical Society and The Royal Scottish Geographical Society in order to align our collective activities and events and to ensure that our combined efforts help younger professionals build their careers and their case for Chartered Geographer accreditation.
We are also keen that this initiative is driven by early career professionals and that it reflects your views and needs. Therefore, we wish to create a small team of volunteers (who are at an early stage in their careers), to design and run the network. This is a great opportunity for you to get directly involved with AGI and to gain recognition across the industry.
If you are able to provide a free venue for hosting an event, we would also be very keen to hear from you!
