Emerging Leaders Committee

The Plank Center’s Emerging Leaders Committee serves as the liaison between the Center and those in the first few stages of their careers. Members are ambassadors of The Plank Center in their workplaces and embody the values that Betsy Plank held dear. This select team of young professionals offers diverse insights to the Center, while creatively building bridges that help new practitioners become successful leaders.

From umbrella beginner tips to more niche, tailored topics, The Emerging Leaders Committee offers a series of tactical skill-based guides available for broad educational use. Check out its Resource Guides here.
