Young Professionals Melbourne (YPM)

Young Professionals Melbourne (YPM) is an initiative of the ICS-ANZ Branch to recognise and cultivate leadership amongst the next generation of maritime professionals in a social atmosphere.  If you are under 35 years of age and working in the maritime industry in Melbourne, then you should join our YPM group.  The YPM group meets on a regular basis to engage in social and information sessions.  This is a great way to network your way with like-minded professionals in the industry.  The President of the YPM sits on the Branch Committee.

If you are interested in becoming a YPM member, please email us at and the YPM President will contact you.
