Congratulations to the graduates of our 2015 Future Leaders program. This year, 28 students completed the 9-month program, and received their certificates on September 8.

Participation in the Future Leaders program requires nomination by an individual’s direct supervisor or another company executive. Our program debuted in 2003, and we are proud to have graduated more than 300 individuals since then. Our program has received recognition by ABC National, and is often cited as a model for developing up-and-coming leaders at ABC-member companies.

This year, we explored topics including relationship building, communications, team building, Whole Brain Thinking and goal setting. We are looking forward to seeing these graduates serving in leadership roles within ABC, as committee members, committee chairs, and board directors. 

We were honored to have three veteran Future Leaders faculty members facilitate sessions this year - Jack Williams, IDEALS Leadership Foundation, Inc., Roger Blackstock, Peer Synergy Group, Inc., and Don Witzel, D.R. Witzel.
