Young members are represented within the SECED by the Young Members’ Subcommittee (YMSC). They aim at promoting collaboration amongst students and young professionals, enhancing knowledge in the fields of earthquake engineering and civil engineering dynamics and sharing ideas and concerns with the Society. Formed in July 2017 and assigned with the additional task of shaping and formalising the Young Members’ Group terms of reference within the Society Statutes, the YMSC brings together talented individuals from both academia and industry.
