Membership in the Professional Association of Independent Subsoil Experts (PAOISE) is becoming an integral aspect of career development for specialists in the field of subsoil use. This is not only a confirmation of a high level of competence and professionalism, but also a demonstration of commitment to continuous professional development and compliance with ethical standards.
One of the main arguments in favor of membership in the PONEN is the active desire of specialists for professional improvement. By participating in events, training programs and seminars, the members of PONEN demonstrate their willingness to update their knowledge and skills in accordance with the latest trends and innovations in the industry. This allows employers and clients to be sure that the specialists with whom they cooperate always respond promptly to changes in the field of subsoil use and have relevant knowledge.

In addition, membership in PONEN also confirms commitment to high ethical standards, which plays an important role in building trusting relationships with customers and partners. Compliance with the Code of Ethics and the KAZRC Code (Code of Professional Standards Governing Activities in the Field of Subsoil Use) is becoming an integral part of professional practice for the members of PONEN, which creates the basis for sustainable and long-term partnerships.

Thus, it can be argued that membership in the PONEN is a key success factor for specialists in the field of subsoil use.
