Emerging Talent Network
The Emerging Talent (ET) Network has been established by Infrastructure NZ to develop the next generation of infrastructure leaders. The ET Network facilitates cross-sector networking opportunities for young leaders under the age of 35, provides practical career development advice, and fosters a greater understanding of the wider infrastructure landscape.
Membership is complimentary for individuals employed by an Infrastructure New Zealand member organisation. If you are not currently employed by an Infrastructure New Zealand member, the annual Emerging Talent membership fee is $250 per annum. Members are eligible to attend four ET events per year (Auckland based), specifically organised for the young leaders by the young leaders.
