YSN The Young Super Network

What is YSN about?

The Young Super Network (YSN) was created by AIST in 2010 to provide a forum for people in the not-for-profit super sector that facilitates open and creative discussion of issues relevant to our industry. It is also a great opportunity to socialise and network with members from a wide variety of roles within super.

Through professional and social gatherings, YSN provides an environment for young professionals in the super industry to expand their knowledge and networks.

Membership to YSN is open to all employees within the superannuation sector. Membership is free.
