Additional industry experts from around the world will join the Brand Ambassador team over time.

McKeefery added "through the Brand Ambassador program, these highly qualified professionals will expand their reach, educate their peers and serve as mentors to new S&C coaches.

“PLAE is fully dedicated to being a comprehensive resource that supports and helps grow the industry.”
