Creating Opportunities for High Impact Leadership

Posted by: JustinFreeman on Tuesday, July 18, 2017
Northwest Arkansas Emerging Leaders (NWAEL) exists to connect and engage Northwest Arkansas young professionals through personal and professional development experiences. Membership is open to anyone in Northwest Arkansas that has a desire to get involved in the community, expand leadership skills and engage in the program of work. NWAEL offers five work teams that provide members opportunities to get involved in projects improving the community and making the region a better place to live, work, and raise a family. These are the teams: Community Enrichment: This team provides avenues for dialogue and education about community issues as well as opportunities to become engaged in projects that will enrich the region. They also host monthly networking events. Legacy: This team’s mission aligns closely with one of the top overall priorities of the organization: to infuse new talent with existing leadership. The premise of the team is to actively seek ways and means to give “ready, willing and able” future leaders the training and platforms required to transition them into long-term, impactful positions for our community. Greenway and Trails: This team links parks, trails and people; to provide, protect, develop and maintain parks, greenways and trails throughout the community; and to promote public awareness of the benefits of green space. Political and Government Affairs: This team offers non-partisan programs to assess current political issues and opportunities; educate on political and government processes; and engage and encourage participation in local, state and federal government. Sustainability: This team is focused on increasing sustainability in Northwest Arkansas and diverting recyclable material out of the landfill.
