Two Ten Associate Board
Two Ten Associate Board members at FN PLATFORM, 2018

The industry’s next generation of leaders comes together to support their foundation.

After many months of planning, the very first Two Ten Associate Board was formed and launched last Fall.  This group of 19 young women and men from across the industry and the country will actively support building awareness of Two Ten and increasing engagement in our programs —in their own companies and throughout the industry — while providing both the Foundation and our Board of Directors with new ideas and a bit of fresh perspective.

The group made their “debut” at the 2017 Gala, acting as official event hosts while raising money through a raffle and on-site games.  Interviews with several members were featured in a recent issue of Footwear News, followed by a live panel discussion during February FN Platform.

Currently planning their first annual, national fundraiser for Two Ten, we anticipate this impressive group of next-generation leaders will continue to increase in number and influence as they grow their visibility, reach and impact.
