The AED Foundation constructs pathways to opportunity for the equipment distribution industry with one goal in mind: to grow and develop support for our members. The AED Foundation Fundraising Gala is an event specifically for generous supporters of The AED Foundation (AEDF). Last year, the AED Foundation improved the availability of future industry employees by expanding its network of accredited diesel-equipment technology college programs and recognized high school programs, promoting the importance of investment in career and technical education programs, and working to increase awareness and interest among school-age students.
2022 AED Summit is planned for January 16 to 19, 2022 at the Disney Coronado Springs Resort in Orlando, Fla.
