A. Professional Development
Designed to provide learning opportunities throughout the year and serve as a resource for young professionals. These opportunities will primarily be delivered by webinar, with the exception of March and July. In March, we will look to have a face-to-face meeting. Then in July, the session will be proposed as a part of AMS, while being streamed/conducted as webinar for those who can’t attend.

Tentative Webinars and Activities
November: How to Navigate Workplace Dynamics (working with older generations)
December: It’s Crazy Out There — The Best of Time Management and Staying Organized
March: Skills Boot Camp
Day 1: Advanced Social Media (2 hours in the late afternoon/evening)
Day 2: Morning photo adventure (1/2 day) and Best of Photoshop (1/2 day)
April: The Intricacies of Working with Business Development and Sales
May: Advanced Social Media — Discover How PR Firms Use SM for Big AG
June: The Science to Creating Hot Headlines
July: Get to Know AAEA – Committee Structure and Roles, and How to Get Involved (@AMS)

B. Other Priorities
Create a Facebook group as a way to stay engaged and develop a sense of community. Goals of the group will be to:
1. Share stories, ideas, and things of interest.
2. Offer feedback on an article, project (help)
3. Discuss issues of importance and concern
4. Point out good resources (websites, books, orgs)
Facebook Live: Could serve as a follow up from the webinars/learning opportunities to share what you’ve done with that (ie best headlines, videos, hot topics and issues to keep your eye on). Could also serve as a place for members to get feedback/critiques on photos from expert photographers or just from each other.
