    About  The  ACEC Georgia  Junior Board

    The Junior Board’s Mission:    

    The ACEC Georgia Board is a group of young engineering industry professionals who are eager to get more involved in the business side of engineering, engage in ACEC Georgia, and expand their networks through social, educational, and volunteer opportunities.    

     

    The Junior Board will have 5 Priorities:

    • Input and New Perspectives 
    • Professional Development Growth     
    • Raising Brand Awareness
    • Socializing & Networking  
    • Volunteering        

     

    Input and New Perspectives: 

    Board members will provide feedback and bring fresh perspectives to ACEC Georgia at the monthly meetings. Each meeting will have a set agenda and the opportunity for Board members to provide their thoughts on engagement opportunities, improvements, and new ideas for ACEC Georgia to increase its value to the younger employees of its Member Firms. Board members should be prepared to engage in the meetings and provide their thoughts and ideas on how ACEC Georgia can continue to provide the best-in-class information and events for our members.  

       

    Professional Development Growth:   

    Serving on the Junior Board will provide you with an excellent opportunity to expand your professional development within the engineering community. There will be programs, volunteer opportunities, and networking that will allow you to grow as an individual and professional. We encourage you take advantage of the opportunities this board will provide you. 

     

    Socializing & Networking: 

    Board members will plan engaging social events for the Junior Board throughout the year. These will be opportunities for Junior Board members to get to know each other better and engage with each other outside of ACEC Georgia events. Potential ideas could include scheduling a time to go to a brewery for an evening after work or meeting up with each other one-on-one for coffee. We encourage you to build relationships with your fellow Junior Board members through your term and to share information for upcoming socializing and networking opportunities via email, Slack and at the monthly meetings.  

       

    Volunteering:   

    Volunteering is going to be a big part of your services on the ACEC Georgia Junior Board. Each member is expected to volunteer to serve on at least one committee, forum, or task force. A list of all of these groups can be found in the ACEC Georgia Junior Board Handbook and on the ACEC Georgia website. You will also have opportunities to volunteer at ACEC Georgia events, such as our Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day and the Georgia Transportation Summit. You must volunteer for at least two events during your term. We will be communicating all volunteer opportunities via email, Slack, and at the monthly meetings. Volunteering is a great way for you to advance your career through volunteer leadership, expand your professional network, and give back to the engineering community, so be sure to take advantage of it!
