Younger Members' Council
The Younger Members' Council (YMC) is a body of expert individuals under 36 drawn from our global membership and tasked with coordinating the comprehensive representation, support and promotion of early career maritime professionals, cadets and students.
It meets quarterly to advance its ambitious programme of outreach, webinars, events, written articles and more, and to help make the latest developments in the industry relevant and accessible to those starting off their maritime careers.
