Future Executives Institute teaches leadership skills

NRCA's Future Executives Institute (FEI), a three-year educational program designed to develop the management and leadership skills of future and current leaders of roofing companies, will begin its next program Oct. 22-25 in Chicago at Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management. The program will examine management theory and practice and offer broader views of companies as they exist in the business world.

The FEI program will provide basic business information, current industry topics, leadership and personal-development opportunities, and team-building exercises. Courses will be taught by Northwestern University professors, industry leaders and field experts, and class size is limited to 30 roofing professionals to facilitate in-depth conversations and class relationships during the three-year program. Topics addressed during the first-year program will be expanded upon in years two and three.

Standard registration fees (after June 1) for the program are $4,575 for NRCA members and $6,400 for nonmembers, which covers books, some meals, additional class activities and three nights' lodging fees at the Fitzpatrick Chicago Hotel in addition to a special meeting during the International Roofing Expo. Advance registration fees (by June 1) are $4,275 for NRCA members and $5,975 for nonmembers. If you prepay for all three years by June 1, registration fees are $12,075 for NRCA members and $17,175 for nonmembers.
