ACEC Emerging Leaders Forum

ACEC’s Emerging Leaders Forum (ELF), founded at the 2012 Fall Conference, includes education programming for young professionals who aspire to firm leadership; an interactive online community for these professionals to share best practices; and a Steering Committee of emerging leaders which helps to develop topics for ELF programming.

Each ACEC conference and convention features content specifically designed to explore emerging professional leadership concepts and skills and the Forum is working to turn this group into an active and steadily growing peer network. ACEC offers ELF programming to prospective ELF convention attendees at reduced registration rates.

Topics covered in ELF programs/sessions include:

  • Leadership techniques for Generation Y and beyond
  • Fostering organizational health, resilience, and creativity
  • Communication, both face-to-face and electronic
  • Management skills and approaches
  • Improving workplace accountability

The newly formed ELF Online Community offers peer collaboration by providing an environment to connect and engage; share experiences, industry information, and best practices; seek and share advice; and exchange resources and build relationships. This new communications vehicle, with more than 250 participants, makes it easy for young professionals to participate in the ELF program.

ELF program participation is available to employees of member firms at no cost, although there may be costs associated with some of the educational offerings.  For more information on the Emerging Leaders Forum or its community, please contact:
