Beginning this year, ABC MA designated the Future Leaders with an ex officio seat on the Board of Directors, to which I was appointed, so we could provide the Board with insight and influence from our perspective. This achievement alone is an example of what we stand for, growth through active participation.
While we continue to collaborate with and be supported by industry leaders within the ABC member network, it is important that managers and leaders of our companies stress the importance of professional growth through education, networking and relationship building. There is a common misconception that networking events are solely attended by pushy sales people. While this can be true for some, most events are attended by those who value and understand the importance of relationship building and are very welcoming.
We are pleased to announce that our first event of the year, Action Matters, will be held Thursday, April 12th at Jake and Joes in Norwood, MA. Brandon Labelle of Northwest Mutual will discuss his leadership philosophy and how his methods can help you define your leadership style.
Through the tremendous efforts the Future Leader’s board and members, I feel strongly that we have the right group of people in place to accomplish our mission. The men and women who are engaged and active in the Future Leaders are truly an inspiration and care about the “youth” of ABC member companies. Don’t miss out on the great things to come in 2018.
2018 Chair, ABC MA Future Leaders
