Outcomes of joining a professional body – 

In NPK, we have numerous professional bodies. Students have the freedom to join any number of professional bodies.

It is important that you join professional bodies relating to your field and be active in the engineering professional bodies up to date information and communication in the area of competence.

Students can draw a lot of benefits from being active in professional bodies

Below are five of the many outcomes you get by joining a professional body:-

1. Recognition: When you become a member of your professional body, you become truly recognised as a qualified professional in your field and that you are a member with professional qualifications. If you cannot be endorsed by your professional body, what would make others believe that you belong to that profession?

2. Continuous professional development: Most professional bodies conduct training sessions from time to time and they offer discounted fees to their members. By joining your professional body, you will directly enjoy this benefit. This will greatly enrich your CV, make you current and relevant in competencies and skills and you will be ahead of your peers in your profession.

3. Leadership development: When you become a member of your professional body, you have the opportunity to volunteer towards helping organise their events and conferences, towards membership development and so on. You can join some of their sub-committees and eventually compete for roles on their main committee or the council. This gives you a unique chance to develop teamwork and leadership skills which are vital for your professional development and greatly enrich your CV, especially early into your career. You may not be a manager at your office, but your being active at the professional body may give you good exposure to management and leadership which in turn can help you accelerate your promotion into management at work, for example.

4. Network: Being a member of your professional body gives you a great opportunity to network with numerous people in your profession. This is one of the easiest ways to quickly and greatly expand the reach of your networking. We have discussed the benefits of networking numerous times under the Rise and Shine column.

5. Opportunities: Professional bodies broadcast many relevant opportunities to their members including opportunities for recruitment, consultancies, professional development and so on. Why not enjoy this benefit as a bonus when you become a member of your professional body? If you are not a member of your professional body, you will miss out on so many amazing opportunities, unlike your peers who are members of your professional body.
