Leadership Development Program

ABC’s Leadership Development Program (LDP) is a structured yet customizable action plan that cultivates the holistic skills required for executive leadership. Individuals selected for this program are often sought out as “rising stars” in their companies, with distinct qualities of character, command and intelligence. LDP graduates develop fundamental skills that bring great value to the individuals and their employers. The program helps participants:

  • further their leadership skills and professional development
  • learn more about ABC and increase their involvement in the association
  • demonstrate their desire and ability to serve as a leader of our industry

Throughout the 16-month cycle, program participants take part in both required coursework as well as elective activities to earn credits towards the completion of the program.

They also benefit from interacting with a team of construction industry professionals who serve as mentors and share their stories, advice, experience and fellowship.

The next Leadership Development Program class will be the 2022-2023 class. Applications will be available approximately September 2021.

Blase Cooke Leadership Achievement Award was created to recognize one stand-out graduate from each cycle of the program who truly demonstrates leadership skills and a commitment to the industry and our chapter.
