As a leader in the educational planning, design, and construction industry, the Southern Region Emerging Professionals Focus Group is inviting you to kick off 2015 with a blast! Join other young professionals in the industry at your local chapter event to socialize and create connections.

 

The Emerging Professionals Focus Group's primary goal is to engage students and professionals interested in educational facility planning, design, and construction who are in the early stages of their careers. The idea is to harness the energy of this emerging demographic, create awareness of the benefits of A4LE, and foster industry connections. While most Emerging Professionals may fall into a demographic bracket between the ages of 20 and 30 years old, we welcome participants of any age who have recently embarked on a career in the industry.

 

This event is centered around the concept of building relationships with the future of our industry. Feel free to stop by, interact with your peers, and begin fostering new relationships!
