FLD Year-end Social
Our Future Leaders Division (FLD) will be having their year-end gathering on Thursday, Dec. 7 at 3:30 pm at Brewski's Pub and Grub across from Samantha's. (Dutch treat). This annual event is a great laid back get together and offers younger members the chance to network and fellowship together.  If you're interested in sponsoring the event for $250, contact Beth Franks.
 
FLD provides our industry with a great opportunity to help develop the next generation of leadership and management within our community.  There is no cost associated with joining FLD, and any individual within an AGC member company under 40 years of age is eligible to participate and receive announcements about informative and enjoyable activities and events.
 
We need to continue to look toward the future by getting younger members of our community even more engaged.  Please allow and encourage these individuals to participate in this mutually rewarding experience. Already a member?  Help us recruit others. Contact Beth Franks at bfranks@agcar.net for more information or to sign up.
