Ross Group Young AFCEA Professional Taking On Another New Initiative

Dayton OH, Feb. 24, 2009 - Brian Osborne, Ross Group's Government Business Development Manager, is building the foundation for yet another Young Professional organization in the Dayton region. Mr. Osborne will be working very closely with the Dayton-Wright Chapter of the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association commonly known as AFCEA to establish a centralized gathering of young professionals for both industry and government. This organization will be known as Young AFCEAns.

In order to address these demographics’ unique interests, the mentoring activities of Young AFCEAn members are generally tailored to career development, leadership development, and access to senior leaders that would not otherwise be gained outside of the Young AFCEAn activities. This exposure allows Young AFCEAns to enhance their leadership skills and provides an environment conducive to mentoring and networking.

The Young AFCEAn organization offers it members the valuable opportunity to make an impact within the local community while developing professionally by exercising their leadership skills. "I saw a gap within the AFCEAgroup for some time in regards to young professional participation and it was time to change that," said Brian Osborne. Mr. Osborne has undertaken a similar initiative in the Dayton Arts community for a non-profit known as Culture Works which has been underway for several months now.
