2015 Spring Forum

After record attendance in Milwaukee last year, the 2015 Spring Forum in Charlotte is shaping up to have an even larger turnout. The opportunity to attend is invaluable as this program brings young professionals in from around the country and offers the opportunity to network, learn and grow. 

Thanks to the support from ASA’s Supplier Partners, each year’s program is centered on a two-day educational seminar and a tour of one of the industry’s leading manufacturers — this year Apollo Valves takes center stage.


Operation: Rise & Conquer

In addition to the Spring Forum, YE has taken the driver’s seat to raise awareness and funds for a great cause, Operation: Rise & Conquer (ORC). ORC is a program that empowers and inspires disabled veterans and recovering active-duty service members to regain confidence and trust themselves, as well as others. 

ORC participants are sent on a week-long outdoor adventure using adaptive sports equipment to snow ski, rock climb, mountain bike and much more. The YE’s were able to raise almost $30,000 at last year’s Spring Forum. In 2015, the goal is to raise $100,000 through various ASA functions, including a fundraiser at the Adaptive Sports Center in Colorado. More details on ORC can be found at adaptivesports.org/adventure/military-programs.
