There’s still time to nominate yourself or someone you know to ACPA’s Emerging Leaders Group.
As we’ve been reporting, ACPA is looking for your company’s best and most promising new or emerging leaders to participate in the Association’s Emerging Leaders Group (ELG). There are still a few spots left on the ELG and the upcoming business/social meet-up, which is tentatively planned for next month.
If you or someone you know would be a good candidate for this leadership group, please complete (or forward) the ELG backgrounder and nomination form. After completing the form, it can be saved, then forwarded to ACPA’s staff liaison, Eric Ferrebee.
Eric says the group is a good way to learn about ACPA national and the chapter network while also “working on passion projects that can benefit the industry.” The ELG currently has four working groups that are focusing on technology, marketing, work force development, and specifications.
“The social side is an important part, too,” he says. The group has done team-building, meet-ups at ACPA meetings, and other activities that give young professionals an opportunity to spend time with peers who have common interests. “It’s nice to work on specific things together, but we also have fun as a group.”
He encourages nominees to complete and return the form to ACPA by Monday, Feb. 25. The group is open to members and chapter representatives who are 45 years old or younger and who are eager to grow into leadership roles.
