Developing Leaders

The next Emerging Leadership Summit (ELS) is scheduled for April 2-3, 2020 in Chicago. 

The Summit is designed to provide a powerful professional development opportunity for emerging leaders who have a desire to advance their careers in the assessment industry.

Participants will develop the skills needed to navigate the unique dynamics of a typical assessment office and discover leadership tools needed to guide an assessment office into the future.

Attendees will come away with a new network of peers and colleagues with a shared purpose who can support each other in their careers long after the summit is over.

Who should attend?

ELS is designed for early to mid-career managers who have a desire to advance within the assessment profession. Early to mid-level managers in their first or second leadership roles are ideal attendees.
