After the third successful year of our Young Leader Leadership Program, we are now accepting applications for the 2018 Program!

This one-year program brings together a maximum of 12 young professionals who spend the year together on a journey of personal and professional enrichment.  The Program leverages senior members of the CRE community as faculty as well as outside professionals in the area of professional development.  It focuses on elevating young professionals’ understanding of the various disciplines that make up the corporate real estate field and, through personal one-on-one coaching, allows the young leader to better understand his/her strengths and areas for improvement as well as how to enhance their personal brand and leadership skills. 

At the end of the program, the class will “graduate” at our annual Awards of Excellence dinner in November 2017.
