ECC '17: Future Leaders development program

Per the ECC Association charter, their “Future Leaders Program”  is developing nominees from company sponsors.  This is a three-year program, for people who are chosen by their employer.

The ECC Future Leaders Program is a vibrant network of emerging professionals that supports the ECC's mission to promote thought leadership through fresh perspectives. By developing new ideas and giving visibility to bright leaders, this program energizes participation in the industry and encourages growth and innovation.

Future Leaders will have the unique opportunity to network with industry leaders, collaborate with peers in the ECC community, and participate in the Annual ECC Conference. Tomorrow's game-changing executives are today's Future Leaders, and this program provides connections and exposure needed to take that next step.

The ECC Future Leaders program:

  • Promotes new talent and unique perspectives through networking
  • Supports development and increases diversity of the ECC community
  • Furthers careers within the engineering and construction contracting industry
  • Collaborates with ECC Board to produce content for annual ECC Conferences

The future leaders have their own separate mid-year meeting, meet virtually each month, and do peer development by networking with other ECC members, not just fellow future leaders. These people, after the three-year sponsored involvement can stay personally engaged with ECC as Future Leader alumni.  One interesting statistic is by 2030 Millennials will outnumber Boomers by 22 million in the U.S.

One significant contribution of this group is planning sessions, thought leadership, networking, engagement and social media for the ECC annual conference. Each year they rotate the three-person leadership who liaise with the ECC board. Each company sponsoring the upcoming ECC Conference is entitled to nominate a participant for the Future Leader Program. Future Leaders can participate up to their third year in the ECC conference within this program.

Future Leaders should:

  • Have 10-15 yr experience in the industry
  • Be in an entry to mid-level management position
  • Be recognized within the sponsoring organization as an "Emerging Leader"
  • Participate in the mid-year meeting
  • Participate in thought leadership / professional development activities
