Nominations for 2019 Developing Industry Leaders Due by August 9
If your company has a rising star whose career is ready to work on a national level, please submit his/her application no later than Friday, August 9. Click here to download the application form. Of note, the DIL program is a many-year commitment; after the formal launch year ends, DIL alumni are expected to mentor future DILs as well as participate in DIL alumni and industry events and meetings.
Starting this year, special activities will be held for current DILs that include DIL alumni so that they all can expand their network. It will start with all DILs receiving an invitation to engage with the industry’s senior leadership at the 2020 annual Spring North American Concrete Alliance Fly-in, in Washington, DC. The two-day event pulls together a coalition of 12 concrete-related associations for the purpose of addressing industry-wide concerns and initiatives in the areas of research, safety, education and government affairs. While in DC, groups will travel to Capitol Hill to meet with representatives and their staffs to discuss the impact of legislative actions on our industry. This will not only provide an incredible networking opportunity but also a rare chance to see the federal government at work during what should be a very interesting presidential election year.
Applications and any questions/comments should be e-mailed to Eileen Dickson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
