What Types of Opportunities do the Young Executives Offer?
The YE provides a range of opportunities including targeted education from industry leaders, informal networking nights and YE exclusive social events. Recent examples include:
Golf With a Mentor - an afternoon of golf with a local industry mentor and other industry peers
Industry Nights - ongoing tours that showcase member companies and capabilities
YE Curling Qualifier - the annual YE curling event that gives attendees a chance to win a spot in the main bonspiel through a half day funspiel
Site Tours - tours of notable projects in the community including Merlis Belsher Place, the Jim Pattison Children's Hospital & River Landing
Do I have to be a member of the Association to join the Young Executives?
Yes, the YE group is an exclusive benefit of membership with the Association. This allows us to ensure that members are meeting the right people at our events - those who you will actually be interacting with in the industry!
I’m not an "Executive", can I still get involved?
Absolutely. The YE welcome people from all career levels and positions in order to develop their connections and skills in the industry. The skills developed with the YE have even led members to move on to Association committees and the Board of Directors.
We typically include members under 40 years of age in our YE category, however, this is more of a guideline not a rule and we frequently have those who are "young at heart" from all career stages attend YE Events & Education.
