GBA Announces the Formation of the Next Emerging Leaders Class

GBA is excited to announce the  launching of the 4th Emerging Leaders Class in 2019. The Class will include 20 to 30 representatives of GBA member-firms that have high
potential as consultants and business leaders.  Our goal is to provide those future leaders with tools to accelerate their growth and unleash their potential through education, networking, and collaboration.  While networking with other similar emerging leaders, each emerging leader will expand their knowledge through GBA’s unique business-education resources associated with risk management and business performance optimization.

GBA’s previous Emerging Leaders classes have been highly regarded for the leadership growth of the participants and for their contributions to their firms and to our profession.  This is an exceptional opportunity to unleash the potential of an Emerging Leader in your firm.

Benefits to Participants

    • Build camaraderie with fellow class participants and GBA member firm representatives through outstanding networking opportunities.
    • Complete specific tasks identified by the Emerging Leaders Class (could lead to creation of a white paper or presentation at an upcoming GBA conference).
    • Become engaged with and contribute to existing GBA Committees or Councils, which may lead to future committee leadership responsibilities.

Benefits to GBA Member Firms

  • Expose your Emerging Leaders to the wide array of GBA benefits and resources.
    • Equip your Emerging Leaders with valuable insights and contacts from across the geoprofessional community.
    • Optimize your Emerging Leaders performance and skillsets through interaction and training with other top-notch professionals.
    • Expand your companies’ influence in GBA and pave the way for retiring personnel to pass the GBA torch to the next round of GBA leaders.
