Role on the committee: Emerge Summit Co-Chair
What’s your relationship to Metro EDGE and/or Emerge Summit? I joined Metro EDGE a handful of years ago. My first action item was to find a committee and use it as touchpoint for my involvement with the organization. After a few years with the Development Committee (responsible for educational forums and signature events like Executive Insight), I was given the opportunity to put my event planning skills to further use as I joined the Emerge Summit team. I’ve graduated to Co-Chair and sit on EDGE’s Leadership Council, which has opened to my eyes to how much EDGE does in our community. Get involved. Amazing people are waiting to meet you.
