ENR Top Young Professional Conference


[Enter Manager’s Name],

I would like to get your approval to attend ENR’s Top Young Professionals Conference on February 23-25, 2022, in Tempe, AZ.

With a sharp focus on equipping early career professionals like myself to thrive in a rapidly changing business landscape, this is not your typical conference. Arguably, no one knows the AEC industry – past, present and future – like ENR, whose editorial team prepared this outstanding educational program wherein I will learn about the strategies that drive the most successful businesses of our time. By attending ENR’s Top Young Professionals Conference, I will have the opportunity to surround myself with the best talent in the AEC industry, to expand my skills and increase our firm’s productivity and intelligence.

While attending this two-day event I will learn from visionary keynotes, gain new perspectives from panel discussions and participate in small group learning workshops to strengthen my skills in [teambuilding and leadership], [sustainability], and [contract negotiation strategies].

Between the content presented, networking opportunities with other attendees like myself, and the chance to meet and be inspired by this year’s Top 20 Under 40 winners presented by Engineering News-Record, this event will be an incentive to be more productive than ever.

Below is the approximate cost of attending for your review:
Hotel:               $175/night for [#] nights
Registration:   $199
Meals:              $ (all meals except dinners are included in the registration fee)
Airfare:            $
Total:               $

Our company’s presence at this event represents a valuable opportunity to learn new tools and strategies for project success and connect with potential vendors, suppliers, and customers. Please let me know if you have any questions, and thank you in advance for your support of my professional development.
