U40 & YBN Networks
VICA has two Under 40 Networks: one based in Victoria (now known as the Young Builders Network) and one based in Mid Island. The U40 Networks have two separate functions each month:
Leadership Meetings: Everyone is welcome to attend these meetings where we discuss and plan upcoming programming and annually elect new committee members.
Networking & Professional Development Events: All network members are encouraged to attend. These events vary by month and they will focus on fulfilling the VICA U40/YBN mandate, as stated below.
Past events have included Builders on the Barge, our annual Charity Casino where we raised over $10,000 for Help Fill A Dream, and a “Beer & A Bucket” social, as well as Leadership Round Table Discussions and Speaker Breakfasts with hot industry topics such as Lean Project Delivery. Subscribe to our mailing list to be the first to know about upcoming events!
To develop a young professionals network in order to provide an atmosphere of networking to build relationships within the construction community; to present information, professional development and leadership or mentorship opportunities that will benefit the individual U40/YBN members and their respective companies; to participate in community engagement initiatives; and to support and promote career paths in the construction industry.
