Who is FUEL?

In 2012 AENC launched FUEL (Fostering Unity among Emerging Leaders), a group to address the needs of AENC’s younger demographic and emerging leaders. FUEL was conceived as a vehicle to bring young AENC members and together to strengthen their relationship and involvement with AENC.

FUEL’s charge is to create opportunities for tomorrow’s association leaders, giving them a chance to interact both professionally and socially with more established professionals, while providing avenues to develop organizational leadership skills that will be essential for association management in the future.

FUEL’s mission is Connect. Grow. Lead.
