About AMCA YP Group
The AMCA Young Professionals (YPs) is a group for students and new mosquito and vector professionals. Anyone with less than five years in AMCA and eight years in a mosquito or vector-related field (student, government, industry, etc.) is eligible for YPs membership. It is completely free to join the YPs group.
Our goal is to provide opportunities for YPs to :
- Build relationships with each other and with AMCA “seasoned” and experienced professionals through a variety of activities
- Encourage life-long participation in the AMCA association
The workshops, roundtables, panels, and the YPs social at the annual AMCA meeting and year-round webinars provide learning and networking opportunities. After their tenure in the group, YPs are encouraged to become AMCA members.
As a result, the YPs are welcomed and valued as contributing members of an established, interconnected community.
