Workforce Development

There are four openings left for the 2018-2019 Developing Industry Leaders (DIL) group. The window has been extended until June 29 – or whenever the four slots are filled. If your company delayed getting in the paperwork before last Friday’s deadline, you now have a reprieve. Now in its 15th year, NRMCA's DIL program is a premier career development tool. Participants are given the opportunity to advance their strategic thinking skills and network with peers while being mentored by NRMCA’s senior staff. The DIL agenda differs from other leadership programs in that it exposes 24 selected participants to our industry’s big issues from an all-encompassing, national perspective. Once done with their formal training, DILs are expected to make a long-term commitment to move their team’s initiative forward by joining, and attending, the appropriate NRMCA committee meeting twice each year. DIL participation on NRMCA’s committees infuses new blood into in industry’s leadership track.
