Through ABC-VA’s Leadership Institute, our industry's rising stars experience a full spectrum of leadership styles from industry veterans who focus their message on successful project execution, unmatched professionalism, commitment to ethics, and the ability to motivate and inspire. Through this cohesive, industry-specific leadership program, participants discover and hone their own unique leadership style while developing a greater level of self-awareness and building meaningful relationships with a cohort group they can stay connected with throughout their careers.
This is more than a series of seminars, our Leadership Institute connects you with our industry's top influencers who will be educating you on current industry topics and trends. Participants will complete reading and preparatory assignments, engage in a one-day community service project, and enjoy two social outings to foster camaraderie among the participants. We hope you will seriously consider nominating one of your emerging leaders to participate in this year’s Leadership Institute.
