We are pleased to announce the theme for our third West Texas Young Professional Leadership Summit as Uncharted.
Sponsored by Lawrence Hall – Abilene, Summit will offer a myriad of opportunities for professionals to further explore their unique talents, tackle the topic of mental health, learn to lead with an unbiased lens, and so much more!
From our headline speaker, Marcedes Fuller, to the many breakout sessions mentioned above, the entire day is designed to empower young leaders to think outside of the box while evaluating themselves from the inside and out. In an effort to equip young professionals with the tools and resources to be an asset in their organization, participants will have the opportunity to hear from panelists/speakers with diverse life experiences and perspectives.
"AYP Leadership Summit is a conference designed to catalyze personal and professional develop and to assist those interested in growing and empowering a strong Abilene community. This event will not only help expand your professional network, but, you’ll walk away leading with a purpose, and adding value to your organization and to your career." - Samantha Baker, First Financial Bank
Here at the Abilene Chamber, we’re committed to creating and providing an environment where you feel comfortable, but also have the freedom to do business. Here are a few guidelines we’ll be following:
- To protect your health and the health of others, masks will be strongly encouraged and will be on-hand for those who do not have one.
- We’ll have multiple hand sanitizing stations throughout the facility as well as signage encouraging one way traffic at our larger events.
- Unsure of if the person you’re wanting to visit with is physically distancing? We’ll have colored bracelets on-hand to help you communicate to those around you which measures you are practicing. A red will mean no contact, yellow elbows only while still being cautious, blue hi-five and handshakes with frequent sanitizing.
It is our hope that with these principles, our partners will be able to resume networking while creating a safe space for yourself and those around you.
