Young Negotiators


The Young Negotiators Group (YN Group) is a special interest group designed primarily for AIEN members either under the age of 40 years old currently working in or interested in pursuing an international energy negotiations related career or for those who have less than 5 years of experience in an international energy negotiations role by providing career development and networking opportunities for the next generation of international energy negotiators.


The key aspirations of the YN Group include:
• Increasing membership and participation in the AIEN activities.
• Promoting networking events with the YN Group and AIEN.
• Providing tools for career development.
• Engaging the broader AIEN membership to participate as presenters at our speaker series breakfast and lunch events and networking events.


The YN Group was founded in 2009 due to the growing needs of the next generation international energy negotiators that have become an increasing part of the AIEN membership base. This is evident from the rapid expansion of the YN Group into 9 cities and a membership base of over 400 in just two years. The YN Group is always looking to expand into areas where there is a strong enough interest to promote our objectives, so please reach out to your Regional Chapter Director with your interest.

As the regular AIEN membership fees apply, there is no additional membership fee to participate in activities of the YN Group. The YN Group leadership teams try to keep event fees low to enhance member participation.
