Four Openings Left for Developing Industry Leaders Program

Print this Article | Send to Colleague

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.

Once selected, DILs work over the summer via conference calls and Webinars. They are then required to attend ConcreteWorks in Washington DC, September 28 - October 1. The group continues to work via conference calls over the fall and winter. They will present their findings at the March 5-7, 2019 NRMCA Annual Convention in Tampa. During their mandatory second year, DILs attend a two-day, summer networking and leadership workshop facilitated by an executive coach. Finally, DILs are always invited to 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.
