Leaders Attend Black Caucus Conference

WASHINGTON -- The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation's Emerging Leaders Series will focus on equipping students and young professionals with legislative and advocacy tools to effect change in their communities. Since its inception six years ago, the series has become one of the most popular attractions at the CBCF's Annual Legislative Conference.

In 2004 the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, Inc. (CBCF) saw the need for insightful discussion on the most pressing issues affecting the black community; thus, the Emerging Leaders Series (ELS) was created. From September 15-18 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, the 40th Annual Legislative Conference (ALC) will include wonderful networking opportunities, in addition to vibrant group discussions. The ELS track is expected to draw more than 1,000 participants.

The series, geared to the 18- to 40-year-olds, offers multiple sessions connecting the nation's powerbrokers with young professionals to discuss strategies for community and personal development.

"Today's young adults face a set of economic challenges rivaling those of the Great Depression," said Elsie L. Scott, Ph.D., president and chief executive officer of CBCF. "The Emerging Leaders Series aims to give young professionals the tools to excel in today's world in spite of any challenges they face, be they economic, social or professional."

Additional ELS Highlights:

  • Annual Networking Brunch for Young Elected Officials and Policy Professionals – The brunch will feature: (1) a facilitated discussion where participants will share strategies for civic engagement and for grooming X-Y generation political leaders; (2) thought-provoking discussion to arm participants with the knowledge and tools they need to strengthen communities through policy advocacy; and (3) networking activities to harness our power through unity. Invitation required.
  • Emerging Leaders Instant Apprentice Luncheon – Emerging leaders sit face-to-face with leading African Americans in all professions to discuss how to gain the competitive advantage in today's market, tap into one's entrepreneurial spirit, and enhance leadership skills by sharing lessons that have helped them become successful. During this high-energy event, participants will have access to powerbrokers by becoming their "instant apprentices."
  • The Black Party Xperience 2 (BPX 2.0) – The second installment of a soulful fusion of music, art, culture, and performance. BPX 2.0 will harness the urban style of Brooklyn, New York and the urban sound of Philadelphia. DJ battles break dancers, air brush artists and a hip-hop documentary projected in the backdrop.

The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, Inc. was established in 1976 as a nonpartisan, nonprofit, public policy, research and education institute to help improve the socioeconomic circumstances of African Americans and other underserved communities.
