Emerging Leaders Provides Leadership Opportunities
Employers look for leadership skills and capabilities in their employees. Leadership opportunities with AFCEA range from running a whole event, holding a position on your chapter's board such as Emerging Leader president or social media chair, being in charge of a membership recruiting campaign, creating all of the marketing materials for an event, or participating in AFCEA international committees.
These possiblities are all open to you as an AFCEA member. Every opportunity that comes your way will enable you to learn and grow. The skills you develop will easily transfer over to your work, making you a better employee and skilled at working with others.
"Getting involved with Young AFCEA was one of the best decisions I have made for my career. It has opened doors for me that I wouldn't necessarily get with any other organization. The organization has taught me how to become an effective leader and has helped me build my network and relationships with members of the community.
The most rewarding aspect of Emerging Leaders is being able to give back to the community. I feel so honored to be a part of an organization that frequently gives scholarships to fund STEM initiatives for students that may not have the resources to do so. The benefits of Emerging Leaders are extremely rewarding, and I would highly recommend any young professional to get involved!" - Brittany Paulshock, Aberdeen Chapter
