Nominate Your Rising Star for the Developing Industry Leaders Program

Now in its 15th year, NRMCA's Developing Industry’s Leaders (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 a year. DIL participation on NRMCA’s committees infuses new blood into an 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 conferenced calls over the fall and winter. They will present their findings at the March 5-7, 2019 NRMCA Annual Convention in Tampa. During their second year, DILs attend a two-day June 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.

If your company has a rising star whose career is ready to work on a national level and will be given the time to participate in the required activities, please submit his/her application no later than Friday, June 15.
