Any Individual Member can sponsor a Young Professional member. However, the fee is applicable for a maximum period of five years and after that the YP members would need to be proposed, seconded and approved, in order to continue as full Individual Members. They would then be required to pay established dues for individual membership.
Young Professionals of the India Chapter can tap into the IAA's collective knowledge base and network and be a part of India Chapters networking events, seminars on industry topics as well as other opportunities such as informal mentoring and advice.
Said Raj Nayak (pictured), president, IAA, “As per rules, the Young Professional members are junior members -- made up of dynamic young people, who would work alongside senior Chapter members -- all interested in being part of the IAA marketing communications professionals network. The YP members, therefore, being non-voting members shall not be included in determining the total number of membership of the India Chapter.”
There will be an early bird lucky draw, where one lucky winner from the Young Professional Members, who are valid members by August 20, 2009, will win an expense paid trip to attend The 26th Asian Advertising Congress (AdAsia 2009) between 22nd and 24th October 2009 at Kuala Lumpur.
