Nominate Your Rising Star for Developing Industry Leaders (DIL) Program
Now in its 14th year, NRMCA's Developing Industry’s Leaders (DIL) program is a premier career development tool. Participants are given the opportunity to advance their leadership 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 participants to our industry’s big issues from an all-encompassing, nationwide perspective.
Once selected, this year’s cohort group is expected to work over the summer via conference calls and Webinars and are required to attend ConcreteWorks in Dallas, September 28 - October 3. The program will start with a half-day launch workshop where they will also be placed in their small working research team. Over the fall and winter, the team works on their issues further. At the 2018 NRMCA Annual Convention, they will present their findings to NRMCA’s membership. Once done, DILs are expected to make a long-term commitment to move their team’s initiative(s) forward by joining, and attending, the appropriate NRMCA committee meetings twice a year. During their second year, the year’s DIL cohort group re-forms over the summer for a two-day networking and leadership workshop, exclusively developed for them. Finally, DILs may attend NRMCA’s semi-annual Board of Directors meetings to watch senior level executives deliberate and make strategic decisions that impact the industry, both short and long term.
Participation in the DIL program is a long-term commitment for a maximum of 24 annually-selected candidates. Applications are due before Thursday, June 15.
