Young Engineers Australia - Northern

Young Engineers Australia Northern (or YEA-N as they are often known) are a community of volunteers acting in an official capacity as ambassadors of Engineers Australia to early-career engineers across the NT.

YEA-N exist to support these early career engineers in a number of ways; by communicating their ongoing changing needs to Engineers Australia, by organising or promoting events to support the professional and career development of these engineers, and by providing ongoing support and community to all who seek it.

YEA-N events are organised throughout the year to promote and develop the skills of engineers in a relaxed, friendly and enjoyable atmosphere.

Current Chair - Vicky Nguyen

Our most recent message from Vicky:

I hope everyone is all safe and well. It's amazing how quickly our 'normal' is changing on an hour by hour basis with the impact of COVID-19.  It can be an anxious time with information from around the world overwhelming us. This coupled with quarantine measures and other restrictions to everyday practices can be particularly stressful and isolating. Just remind yourself that this is a temporary period of isolation and these arrangements are in place to protect the health and safety of you, your family and the community.

Currently, there is no community spread of COVID-19 in the NT and the government is taking incremental steps towards easing restriction which is fantastic news. It is a perfect time for us to take a step back to reset and reprioritise. Stay connected with friends, family and colleagues via email, social media, or phone. Engage in healthy activities that you enjoy and find relaxing.

Moving forward we will witness the transition to the “new normal” where companies are willing to embrace new ideas that may challenge their prehistoric culture and practices. The silver lining here is; millennials being the largest demographic in the current work force will be in a unique position to capitalise on this rare opportunity to shape the “new normal” and office culture.

YEA Northern committee continues to plan and deliver digital events that encourage and support our members development in the current and post COVID-19 world.
