Program recognized for building the GI workforce and encouraging innovation in the field.

AGA is proud to share that the AGA Future Leaders Program has been recognized with the 2017 Power of A Silver Award from the American Society of Association Executives. The Power of A Awards recognize a select number of organizations annually for innovative and effective programs that have a positive impact. The Power of A Awards are the association industry’s highest honor.

The AGA Future Leaders Program, which launched in March 2015, provides a pathway for selected participants to develop the leadership skills necessary to serve AGA. The 1.5-year program provides opportunities for participants to network, connect with mentors, develop leadership skills and learn about AGA’s governance and operations while advancing their careers and supporting the profession. During the program, participants work on creating fresh and innovative projects to support AGA and the field.

The AGA Future Leaders Program’s commitment to encouraging innovation and building the GI workforce are key reasons it was recognized with this prestigious award.

Please join us in congratulating all of the AGA Future Leaders Program participants, mentors, program chairs and staff for their part in this accomplishment. To learn more about this program, visit the AGA Future Leaders Program web page.
