AFE Day at ODU!

Published on 10/22/2018

Recently, AFE 168 had our very first AFE Day at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia.

We wanted to take the time and 
thank all attended and supported AFE’s very first AFE Day on Friday, October 19, 2018 in the Webb Center and Kaufman Hall Building at Old Dominion University.

AFE Day is an outreach event with a focus on students and young professionals on college and university campuses. This event gives advice about mentorship, expectations in the field, Q & A and allows for networking with our panel of certified and tenured experts. We have social media interactions with live streams and forums on our Facebook and LinkedIn pages. We have a booth in the Engineering colleges to allow those who could not attend the panel to still have information about our organization. We are planning more events and interactions for our upcoming AFE Days.

From the start of planning until the end, we truly appreciate all the enthusiasm shown for our day of outreach. We gained takeaways for our first but successful event and we look forward to visiting Old Dominion University and working with you all in the very near future.
