APWA Emerging Leaders Academy

Applications are now open for APWA’s Emerging Leaders Academy! Now in its 7th year, this unique, national program features:
  • Targeted, personalized professional development
  • Focused specifically on leadership skills in the public works field and
  • Creates an elite network of some of the most talented APWA members across the country.
The leadership skills central to the academy complement any public works technical area or specialization and are particularly valuable for those who are new to public works. An engaging curriculum with dynamic speakers, ELA has something for everyone and provides an opportunity for future leaders to get involved and excited about APWA.
The Academy features monthly leadership-focused homework assignments, an educational retreat in October and the chance to network with other ELA alumni, mentors and APWA leadership including the Board of Directors during a public works research project. You’ll work hard, play hard and be richly rewarded for your efforts. This year will be even more exciting as the ELA presents to an international audience at Congress in Toronto!

Emerging Leaders Academy graduates have a strong history of service at the Chapter, branch and national levels of APWA and represent the future vitality of the public works profession. Don’t miss this great opportunity! Apply today! http://www.apwa.net/learn/Emerging-Leaders-Academy
