YP Forum

YP Forum 2024

The British Dam Society Young Professionals Forum is a new initiative for 2024 which will take place on 22nd April at the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE). This event will allow BDS YP members to expand their network while developing their learning of reservoirs. 

The YP Forum will have four sessions, with the topics chosen from the feedback received from the BDS YP members:

  • Reservoir incidents
  • The route to becoming a Supervising Engineer
  • Spillway Design
  • Sustainability 

Attendees will hear from a variety of speakers during the event, including Michael Rogers who was the International Commission Of Large Dams (ICOLD) President from 2018 – 2022. Michael will be a part of the reservoir incidents panel to discuss his experiences with reservoir incidents.

Join members of the BDS committee prior to the forum (12:30 until 13:00) for an informal networking event focused on equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) in the BDS.

The YP Forum will be in the Council Room of the ICE. As this is a new event, attendee numbers will be limited.
