SPE Aberdeen Young Professionals
The SPE Aberdeen section is at the heart of the YP programme. The activities of the Aberdeen YP are managed by a volunteer committee with collective and specific responsibilities for various facets of the organisation.
The Aberdeen YP committee was founded to bring together people in an atmosphere of education and fun. It provides a strong combination of professional development, technical learning, social networking and educational support.
The programme is specifically created for the younger segment of our membership, which makes up approximately 35% of the Aberdeen section members.
