Emerging DealMakers/ Young ACG Track
What is the ACG Emerging Dealmakers Group? In the hopes of increasing our enrollment and participation by the next generation of business leaders, the Raleigh-Durham Chapter of the Association for Corporate Growth has launched an Emerging Dealmakers programming track to compliment its traditional and Executive-level programming. Emerging Dealmaker events will be largely planned and executed by Emerging Dealmaker memebers and will focus on professional development and networking programs specifically targeted at the needs and concerns of ACG members that are involved in the dealmaking space.
Target Audience: Emerging Dealmakers is targetted at people who are starting out in the dealmaking profession that are interested in joining ACG and interested in networking and learning from their local peers. ACG is focused on creating educational and netoworking (not sales!) opportunities for anyone involved in middle-market corporate growth or deal-making initiatives. Typical members include: business owners/leaders, CEOs, CFOs, M&A professionals, corporate strategy & corporate development practioners, investment bankers, & private equity professionals.
Emerging Dealmaker - ACG Programming: Emerging Dealmaker programming includes a mix of professional development and networking opportunities targeted at early to mid-career professionals. Events will be supplementary to and compliment regular ACG programming and are planned by a committee of members and the ACG Board of Directors. Please let us know if you’re interested in helping the Emerging Dealmaker Committee.
