The Emerging Leaders events are world-class experiences for leaders in their 20s, 30s and 40s in the MROP Channel.

As a current or future leader, you are a unique contributor to the success of your organization, which makes your own skill development important. Training and development at ISA's Emerging Leaders Summit and Regional events will help you reach your peak leadership potential and build your network of leaders in the industrial supply industry.

Hear From Past Attendees

“The best take away from the summit was the continued communication I have with other members of Emerging Leaders (seeing how some of the learned ideas are working for them).  Also, I have at least 30 new industry contacts that I can bounce ideas off of and see how they are handling broad customer issues.”  - Nick Baloun, National Account Manager, Apex Tool Group
