Junior TECBAR is aimed specifically at members within their first 10 years of practice and pupils, putting on educational lectures, networking opportunities and social events.


Junior TECBAR is a branch of TECBAR and, as such, there are no additional ‘membership’ requirements. TECBAR members who are within their first 10 years of practice will automatically be added to the Junior TECBAR mailing list. Any other TECBAR member may also be added to the mailing list by request (please address requests to the Junior TECBAR Committee).
Whilst Junior TECBAR events will be tailored for those within the first 10 years of practice, all TECBAR members are welcome to attend.
