The Emerging Leaders Alliance (ELA) is a partnership between engineering, research, and science-based organizations dedicated to leadership development. The ELA promotes great leaders within the technical community, arming them with broad skills to address the needs of people in the 21st century.
The ELA hosts an
annual interdisciplinary leadership conference, providing training in topics such as social styles, leading innovation, global and virtual team leadership, and more. The Conference is an exciting opportunity to participate in hands-on leadership training with members
of leading engineering, research, and scientific organizations.
For further information and specific
participant criteria, visit the
Emerging Leaders Alliance web page.
Each year ASCE selects members to attend the ELA conference as representatives of ASCE. Desired applicant is someone who earned a BS in an Engineering field between 3-12 years ago and is an Associate or Member of ASCE. Selected applicants receive a complimentary
conference registration, but are responsible for travel expenses and lodging.
