One of ASA’s long-standing special interest divisions, Young Executives (YE), has changed its name to Emerging Leaders. This change comes after discussions, amongst ASA’s Executive Committee and the division’s council who collectively aim to further expand the group by appealing to key decision-makers of member companies and their next generation of leadership.
In addition to the name change, membership in the division will be changing from individual dues to company dues. Now, membership in this important division is available to all interested employees of a company with a membership in Emerging Leaders.
The group’s Vice Chairman, Chris Reynolds of Plumbers & Factory Supplies, also weighed in, “The Young Executives Division has always been a strong contributor to ASA’s long term success and will continue to be, under our new banner as Emerging Leaders. The name change simply serves to more clearly define who we are. We will continue to deliver incomparable industry networking and educational experiences for up and coming individuals in wholesale, rep and manufacturer companies.”
The Emerging Leaders Division is designed to nurture and develop leadership skills through education opportunities and networking events specific to the needs of the industry’s future leaders.
