Emerging Leaders Council - 2019

AOBA is excited to launch this NEW professional development program for members with three to 10 years of experience. More than 30 members were selected for the inaugural ELC class.

 “The mission of the Emerging Leaders Council is to support and enrich the goals of AOBA while providing a platform to  shape the development, encourage mentorship and advance the next generation of AOBA members.”

 AOBA is pleased to launch Emerging Leaders Council (ELC) for property management professionals, with three to 10   years of property management experience. The group's first meeting met in February.  The goal of ELC in 2019 is to deliver personal and professional development and networking opportunities to young professionals in the industry, while developing future leaders for AOBA and the industry at large.

By joining AOBA's Emerging Leaders Council, volunteers have agreed to be a committed steward of, and advocate for, AOBA.   The ELC actively supports AOBA by engaging and educating other young professionals about AOBA’s mission. It will also support efforts to recruit new members, and to coordinate an event for AOBA’s young professionals.
