Registration open for Emerging Leaders' Summit

Registration is open until June 30 for the 2022 Emerging Leaders' Summit and this year's theme is leading multigenerations. Leading multigenerations in an office can have its challenges.

The program will be presented in three parts: two webinars (scheduled for July 28 and Aug. 10) and a third session (Mind the Gap!
