AIA | DC Christopher Kelley Leadership Development Program
Beginning in 2013, the AIA | DC chapter undertook an initiative to develop a program which would help train and nurture the next generation of leaders. The year-long program consists of nine individual half-day sessions attended by a competitively selected group of 16 emerging professionals. Prospective participants must go through an application process for selection where proven career success, community involvement and the individual’s firm support will be considered. The curriculum focuses on core professional skills such as entrepreneurship and firm management, working together and collaboration, the art of negotiation, client development, community leadership, industry trends, and developing your future within the practice. Alumni from the Christopher Kelley Leadership Development Program will be joining us at the 2015 AIA Leadership Institute in Washington, DC to share their best lessons learned from participation in the program.
