Our hats go off to Yolanda Lettieri and Alexander J.C. Tsai, who have chosen to sponsor an out of work emerging professional, so that they have the opportunity to attend the inaugural Progression Conference, next Saturday, September 22nd.

Alex and Yolanda have provided an invaluable gift of networking and collaboration for these emerging professionals. What a great contribution to the future of our profession!

“I chose to sponsor an intern or student because I understand what it means to prioritize expenses. I was hired by a great firm just last month, after almost a year of rather sporadic contract work. My networking and determination got me there, so I wanted to share that gift with another. I wish I could sponsor more people, and I hope that my actions would spawn other sponsorships that would lead to a great networking opportunity for everyone to enjoy.
                                                – Yolanda Lettieri

“I was so inspired by Yolanda Lettieri’s pledge to sponsor an emerging professional to attend the Progression Conference that I wanted to pay-it-forward and also sponsor an out-of-work emerging professional to attend the conference. Our future needs to be built on the spirit of collaboration. We are all in this together.”
                – Alexander J.C. Tsai

We hope that these simple acts of generosity will inspire you as well. Sponsor an out of work emerging professional, someone in your firm or contact AIACC if you would like to contribute to an emerging professional’s attendance at Progression.

Conference fees have been set at an especially reasonable rate of $50.00 for emerging professionals and students. Don’t miss out on this great day of dynamic speakers as we (re) imagine our future. Register today!
