More than 100 people gathered at the Robert H. Mollohan Research Center Thursday for the second FUEL event promoting growth and leadership among young professionals in the region.
FUEL, which stands for Forming United Engaged Leaders, began last year after several years of brainstorming that included the Marion County Chamber of Commerce. Now, the program is focusing on a more targeted audience, according to FUEL Committee Co-hair Tim Liebrecht.
“We definitely have a much more targeted audience than last year,” Liebrecht said. “We’re really looking at young and emerging leaders throughout the North Central West Virginia region. We’ve worked with leadership groups and Chambers of Commerce and several groups to spread the word to their emerging leaders.
