Welcome to the Young Professionals Initiative! The Berne Union's 'YP Initiative' was launched in 2019 to increase the role of young professionals in the work of the association by providing a platform which both promotes engagement and increases the value of our output for young, junior and rising professionals in the export credit and investment insurance industry. We have an annual calendar full of activities for the YP's to get get involved in and a dynamic group of 150 Young Professionals from across the Berne Union Membership for everyone to expand their network, share their experiences and learn from one another. This group is designed for the individual, not for the company, therefore as many YP's from one company can join!
The initiative is self-directed by a group of 'Core Group Members' who are responsible for setting objectives and overseeing implementation. You can find more information on the Core Group Members, below.
For those interested in joining the Young Professionals please download this New Member Form, complete it and send to Nicole Cherry at the Berne Union Secretariat - firstname.lastname@example.org

|The Young Professionals compiled a glossary of terms relating to trade / export finance and export credit and political risk insurance. The definitions are collected from a variety of original sources (which are all linked for reference). Where multiple sources exist for a given definiendum, all sources are included. Where there is no suitable source we have provided an original definition.||GLOSSARY|
The Young Professionals will soon be invited to volunteer their efforts towards assisting the BU Secretariat mind map and redesign the new Berne Union Website, to make the information more accessible, like a library!
For those of you who have a creative mind and find pleasure in organising, you can volunteer your involvement in this project by emailing Nicole at the secretariat.
2023 ACTIVITY CALENDAR
The YP Core Group has arranged a jam packed agenda for 2023. As you can see from the calendar here we have an activity almost every month of the year! We would love your involvement in any of these activities so in advance of each, the Core Group will reach out to you all via email to see how you may like to get involved.
Technical webinars are technical / educational webinars promoting hot topics, industry insights, and alternative ways of working
BU Pulse is a newsletter communication to the YP community via email to promote, inform and educate the community on upcoming events, new members, and different ways of working as well as new BU updates / organisation features and top tips!
Hangouts are exactly as they sound, they are fun informal catch ups on zoom to continue flexing that networking muscle between the YP Community, building connections and sharing thoughts of industry hot topics!
