Always be concerned about the well being of the less fortunate.
Believe in your ideas, your inner strength, and your ability to help those in need.
Leadership requires strength, courage, and compassion.
Excellence is a journey not a destination. It blossoms within an environment of empathic and ethical decision-making.
-Dr. Raymond Van Ness
Albany Business Leaders Emerging is the largest student-run organization on campus. ABLE is open to all majors with no GPA requirement and is an excellent way to develop your professional leadership qualities while making great friends at the same time. ABLE is comprised of four main components: social, professional, community service and fundraising. These components are the building blocks of our organization and the main objectives that we promote throughout the university and community.
Our weekly meetings for the semester take place every Tuesday at 7:15pm in the LC Concourse. If you are unable to attend our weekly Tuesday meetings you are more than welcome to attend any of our social or community service events all of which are posted on our ABLE website. Dues per semester are $40. These dues allow you to attend our weekly meetings and social events, including laser tag, ice skating, apple picking, and Thacher Park, in addition to our annual trips to Montreal and Dippikill.
