CBCF Hails The 5th Anniversary Of The Emerging Leaders Series At ALC’09
WASHINGTON – The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, Inc. (CBCF) will present its popular Emerging Leaders Series (ELS) during its 39th Annual Legislative Conference (ALC) September 23-26, at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. This series of panel discussions and networking opportunities is expected to draw more than 1,000 participants.
The series, geared to the 18- to 40-year-old demographic, will offer multiple sessions connecting the nation’s powerbrokers with emerging professionals to discuss strategies for community and personal development throughout the conference. Other sessions will address paying for college in a recession, taking advantage of a “trickle up” economy, and mental wellness strategies from nationally-renowned authors.
“Today’s young adults face a set of economic challenges unmatched since The Great Depression,” said Elsie L. Scott, Ph.D., president and chief executive officer of CBCF. “The Emerging Leaders Series aims to give young professionals the tools to excel in today’s world in spite of any challenges they face, be they economic, social or professional.”
