Leadership Advancement Program Committee

Committee Charge: The Leadership Advancement Program (LAP) team coordinates the training and development of the 2013-14 LAP class and recruits the 2014-15 class. The successful Leadership Advancement Program will achieve the following outcomes:

  • - Deliver a program reflecting feedback and recommendations from the 2012-13 LAP class
  • - Educate LAP participants about NACE history, structure, and engagement opportunities
  • - Provide opportunity for participants to learn about and reflect upon leadership in a volunteer setting
  • - Offer participants insight into strategic NACE priorities, challenges and opportunities
  • - Empower participants to share individual leadership expertise and ideas with their peers
  • - Connect participants with NACE Board mentors to enrich their understanding of association leadership
  • - Monitor the conversion rate of LAP participants through the years to positions of volunteer leadership (e.g. committee chairs, Board directors, etc.) and suggest approaches to strengthen this rate.
