Young Professionals Council Webinars

AFE hosts regular webinars for our Young Professionals Council (YPC), which are open to the public. Established in 2015, the YPC offers leadership and networking opportunities for young industry professionals while getting involved in volunteer opportunities within the floral/horticultural industries.

YPC members participate in online and in-person meetings, webinars, and other networking opportunities to share ideas, collaborate with influential industry members, and help promote careers in the floral industry.

The YPC webinars promote personal and professional growth with topics including career advice, networking tips, leadership, and more. If you would like to join the YPC, please complete the YPC Membership Form.
