Meetings & Programs

June 30 is registration deadline for Emerging Leaders' Summit

Registration is open until June 30 for the 2022 Emerging Leaders' Summit and this year's theme is leading multigenerations. Leading multigenerations in an office can have its challenges. When stereotypes are identified, leaders can embrace the diversity that multigenerations of employees bring to the workplace. In doing so, leaders are able to go from managing a group of multiple generation individuals to building and leading a diverse and high-performing team. The Emerging Leaders' Summit is designed for early to mid-career managers who have a desire to advance within the assessment profession and to grow as leaders. The program will be presented in three parts: two webinars (scheduled for 1-3:00 pm Central on July 28 and Aug. 10) and a third session (Mind the Gap! How to Navigate Intergenerational Communication Gaps in the Workplace) on Aug. 31 at the IAAO Annual Conference. The final session will also be recorded for those unable to attend. Fees are $295 for IAAO members and $395 for non-members.
