This paper explains the development of surveying across the United Kingdom from a historical perspective. It continues by reviewing the change within the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) as it has moved towards its present role as a global organisation. The method of training surveyors within the RICS is discussed and then related to its provision for young trainee surveyors. The development of its networking group known as RICS matrics is explained. The development of a Young Surveyors network within FIG is then reviewed and this in turn is related to the young surveyor network within the RICS. The paper then makes recommendations as to how the two organizations might link further, in collaboration, with the development of its respective young Surveyors groupings. A general review of how similar national/global organizations might link with FIG in a similar way through their young surveyors is also conducted. Broad recommendations on the potential for linking young surveyors across FIG member groups are made in the conclusion.
