A Message from the Founder

Greetings from the Aspiring Leaders Network

Jackdiao2016 If you're interested in your career development, then you've come to the right place.

Who We Are

The Aspiring Leaders Network (ALN) is run by an executive team of dedicated volunteers, and tailored for all professionals (or aspiring professionals) in the business fields across public and private sectors.

Established in January 2014, the Aspiring Leaders Network is the definitive youth network for accounting and finance professionals, and provides fantastic networking and professional development opportunities.

Through networking sessions and professional development events, we bring passionate people together so that we can help develop their careers, spot opportunities (e.g. assignments, job openings), and advance in life together.

What We've Accomplished

In less than three years, the ALN has gone from a mere idea to established chapters in Ottawa, Victoria and Halifax. We have hosted more than 20 events (including the official fmi*igf PD Week receptions), and we now maintain a strong online presence, complete with our own webinars.

Serving as the founder and first chairman of the ALN has been my greatest honour over the past three years. Between recruiting a highly capable executive council to helping members land jobs and assignments, nothing has been more gratifying than being able to use my skills and resources to help my peers.

Now, as new executives step up to take the helm of this most worthy endeavour, I look forward to what exciting directions the ALN will head in. Excellence and success, always.
