Emerging Leaders (EL) is GFA’s young professionals program that provides leadership development and a social network to a wide variety of forestry professionals across the state. The EL group is open to all individuals who are seeking to build their forestry career while honing their leadership skills.
“By helping young professionals in our industry build an extensive network in the forestry community, expand their knowledge of the forestry supply chain, and become confident speakers, the Emerging Leaders program is creating new Champions of Forestry who will guide our industry over the next 50 years.” Andres Villegas, President & CEO of the Georgia Forestry Association
Being part of GFA’s Emerging Leaders Group has helped me keep my momentum with growing my industry knowledge, leadership skills, and professional network since graduating college. Beyond the skills I’ve gained, I have continued and expanded on the invaluable and genuine relationships with both my peers and more seasoned professionals within our industry.”
