As the International Federation of Consulting Engineers (FIDIC) recognizes the importance of young professionals (YPs) to the engineering consulting industry and to society, FIDIC has called its member associations, such as the Council of Engineering Consultants of the Philippines (CECOPHIL), to establish or improve their own YPF based on ‘best practice collected from existing YPFs across member associations’ and ‘practical advices developed by the FIDIC YPF Steering Committee’ (FIDIC Young Professionals Reference Document, First Edition 2013). Accordingly,the CECOPHIL Young Professionals Forum (YPF) was officially established in January 2014, and was formally presented to the Executive Committee of FIDIC during a meeting held in Pasig City, Philippines on February 28, 2014. The CECOPHIL YPF was formed to primarily provide a voice for YPs in the Philippine consulting engineering industry as well as offer a platform for networking, awareness, discussion, communication, and interaction among YPs.
