FIDIC Future Leaders

The FIDIC Future Leaders is the group of young professionals of the International Federation of Consulting Engineers (FIDIC). It was formed in 2004 with the intention of providing FLs with the opportunity to participate actively in FIDIC with their peers and to develop the next generation of consulting engineering industry leaders. As a leadership committee, the Future Leaders Committee (FLC) was formed to develop communication and networking opportunities for all FLs involved in the FIDIC community.

Promoting the participation of future leaders in the consulting engineering industry's activities.
