Thank you for your interest in the AMCA’s Young Professional (YP) group! This group is for early career professionals in any mosquito-related field, including academia, mosquito control, industry, public health, and military. Anyone fitting the following description is eligible for YP group membership:
1) 8 years or fewer in a mosquito-related field (including graduate school) AND
2) 5 years or fewer involvement in AMCA (attending annual meetings; membership in YPs, etc.).
Through in-person and virtual events, the AMCA YP group hosts activities and provides content that introduce YPs to relevant technical and scientific topics, as well as develops general professional skills that are beneficial across all disciplines.
We also value the development of relationships amongst the YP peer group and between YPs and AMCA “seasoned” professionals*, so most of our activities serve as networking opportunities to develop these relationships that benefit the entire organization.
Please fill out the form below to join the group and receive notifications about the YP program and all of our virtual and annual meeting events!
*Are you a seasoned professional but interested in the activities of the YPs? Email email@example.com to get on our email list without officially joining the group. We would love for you to pass our information along to your students or employees!
