Young RMLA

The 'Young RMLA' is a forum for those in the early stages of their resource management careers (up to 5 years' experience) to meet, learn and share experiences.  The Young RMLA seeks to encourage the attendance of young members, non-members, as well as new members to the RMLA.  The Young RMLA aims to provide a greater incentive for young practitioners to join the RMLA, network with their peers and attend seminars and functions that might better meet their needs.

Young RMLA aims to hold events each year, in addition to the RMLA events, with a particular focus on younger practitioners from a variety of resource management fields.  Events are usually attended by a mix of young lawyers, planners, engineers, environmental scientists, experts and students and provide a good opportunity for learning and to meet others with a similar level of experience.

To become a full Young RMLA Graduate member, membership is $38.00 (GST inclusive) from 1 October (this rate applies for the first two years). Simply complete the Membership Form and return it to the Executive Officer.
