How often do we hear that "Youth are the future". So often that it loses its meaning?  Or not often enough?...  And how well do we, as a network and as individual companies, value our younger members and employees.

Our stars of tomorrow are still rising in each one of our organizations…but are we giving them enough support to enable them to go on to become our future leaders?

Why do we want to integrate a Group of Young Professionals within our membership?

  1. To encourage and promote greater participation of the youth among CPN partners at Conference and Meetings.
    We are committed to finding ways to promote the attendance of younger members from the CPN companies to the Annual Conferences by implementing subsidies for participants under certain age and by Awarding Registration-Fee Waivers to competition winners. Details of the competition will be announced shortly.
  2. To focus on Training and Learning activity within the CPN community towards the younger executives.
    Because this is what demands the current pace of the business dynamics; what drives the trends of globalization and the increasing regulation and control. Our organization should be committed to the professional development of its members, especially those who are challenged to a fast process of learning and acquisition of new technological awareness because their shorter experience.
  3. To Supplement the Board of Directors with ideas in their vision and future for CPN.
    Because we recognize the value that their ideas and suggestions represent to the strategic planning by the Directors and the assistance they can provide to promote the visibility and networking of the organization and to increase our presence in the social media space.
  4. To Make CPN more fun
    To benefit from their enthusiasm and initiative as to make the interactions between members, increase the social engagement and assist the Secretariat and the Board with the planning of activities and entertainment parallel to the Conferences.
