NZGS Auckland & Northland YGP Symposium – 9th July 2021

The 3rd NZGS Auckland & Northland YGP Symposium is happening on Friday 9th July 2021 in Auckland.


What is it?

A one-day event where the young and old(er) people of the local geotechnical industry gather to share and learn from each other. Every participant gives a short 10min presentation in a constructive and supportive environment.  You will not only learn but leave more enthused and motivated for your career. It is a shortened, local, less formal version of the highly successful ANZ YGP conference.


Who is it for?

All geo-professionals who are under 35 years old and/or with less than 10yrs of experience, and based in Auckland & Northland.


What is required of me?

To register, send a 100 to 200 word summary of a geotechnical topic on which you can commit to making a 10 minute presentation. The topic should be something that your peers can learn from. No written paper is required. There will be a short question time after each presentation. There will be two friendly mentors present on the day to provide advice and feedback.


How to apply?

To apply, send a short description of your presentation to auckygp@gmail.com by Wednesday 9th June 2021. Cost of the event is $120 per person, including dinner following the symposium. The event is to be held at Beca, 21 Pitt Street, Auckland.
