At MEC Mining we are proud supporters of Young Mining Professionals (YMP) Brisbane. Part of a rapidly expanding global association that includes groups in South Africa, the United Kingdom and Canada, YMP Brisbane is a membership-based group that aims to foster connections, facilitate new business opportunities and provide educational experiences through networking opportunities and events with industry leaders and peers.
Our very own MEC Business Development Manager, Andrew Dittmann, is the Vice Chairman of YMP Brisbane. “Our growing membership represents a group of driven, up-and-coming young mining professionals who are passionate about our industry,” Andrew says. “As a not-for-profit, we’re grateful for the support of companies as we work to empower and promote talented young professionals here in Australia and abroad.”
“Our membership spans all mining disciplines, sectors and sizes – we have members from established mining houses, startups and providers of mining equipment, technology and services. This interconnectivity paves the way for worthwhile collaboration and knowledge-sharing across commodities, companies and areas of expertise.”
