“Within our field, leadership permeates all levels. We continually work in diverse teams to coordinate/design and understanding how to lead even at the lowest levels is imperative to personal and project success. Events like the Leadership Institute provide a platform to both teach and learn from others’ experiences which become invaluable in strengthening leaders at all levels. As an emerging professional, I got involved with the Leadership Institute to help continue to develop programming which provides tools to not only help lead from the top but empowers future leaders to challenge and advocate in their current positions." - Marisa Nemcik, 2018 AIA LI Committee Member
“The Leadership Institute is a movement. Its priority is to inspire and promote the emerging class of young professionals to step up to the plate and pursue leadership roles. To become leaders of their practice, in the profession, and within their communities. The programming and speakers every year have you leaving invigorated and brainstorming of where you can push your career next. The Leadership Institute is important to me because it equips professionals to build the profession they envision.” – James Yankopoulos, Past attendee and 2018 Committee Member
“Being involved with the Leadership Institute has helped me learn how to become a stronger leader and how to get involved at a local, state and national level. After attending the 2016 Leadership Institute in Indianapolis, I was able to help put my newly refined skills to use to serve as a regional associate at the national level. The Leadership Institute gives emerging professionals the tools and resources to help them become advocates within the profession and to their community.” – Ashley Thornberry, 2018 Committee Member
