This year, AMBA is excited to launch its members-only Emerging Leaders Network, a group that will bring together innovative, creative and dedicated young professionals from across all AMBA member companies. These up-and-coming young professionals come from all over the country and all areas of business.

AMBA's Emerging Leaders will meet for the first time at the AMBA Conference 2019 at a pre-conference event. All Emerging Leaders events held are exclusively for these young professionals in the mold building industry. Future events will focus on networking, leadership skills, benchmarking and creating important, lasting connections in the AMBA association. 

Upcoming Events

Emerging Leaders Workshop: Leading from Within

Join other AMBA under-40 professionals during this half-day workshop for the AMBA Emerging Leaders group, where AMBA members (both mold builders and suppliers) will participate in the Predictive Index (PI) Behavioral Assessment, a tool that measures a person's motivating drives and needs. During this event, Heather Haas of Advisa USA will provide personalized coaching, measuring and diagnosing opportunities for performance improvement and leadership development for each attendee at the individual, team and organizational level. Participants will walk away with increased self-awareness and confidence that will allow them to optimize their strengths in the workplace and leadership ability.
