Who is AENC Young Professionals - FUEL?

AENC Young Professionals - 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. AENC Young Professionals – FUEL was conceived as a vehicle to bring young AENC members and together to strengthen their relationship and involvement with AENC.

AENC Young Professionals – 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.

AENC Young Professionals – FUEL’s mission is Connect. Grow. Lead.
