NAHB members who are engaged in leadership activities at the state, local or national levels, and aspire to take on larger roles in the Federation can take advantage of an all-new training program.

The NAHB Leadership Academy is accepting a small group of experienced industry professionals to a yearlong program designed to sharpen their leadership skills and prepare them for more significant leadership opportunities.

“The Leadership Academy is an exciting opportunity for newer leaders to gain invaluable knowledge and experience to take their leadership skills to the next level,” said NAHB Chairman Alicia Huey. “As NAHB continues to expand, I truly believe that training programs like the Leadership Academy will be critical to developing future generations of leaders who will make the Federation even stronger.”

NAHB will kick off the Leadership Academy in April, and the group will work closely together throughout the year as they attend thought-provoking leadership sessions and complete a final capstone project.

Some of the key areas the academy will focus on include:

  • Guiding participants to identify and refine their unique leadership style.
  • Building upon participants’ previous leadership experience and learning how to effectively apply those skills to serve the industry.
  • Expanding participants’ understanding of the NAHB Federation and how they can make an impact through leadership.

Leadership Academy participants should already have some leadership experience under their belts and be active in NAHB committees, councils, events or similar activities. Participants will also need to commit to attend all virtual Leadership Academy events as well as four in-person sessions throughout the year. (NAHB will reimburse a portion of the attendees’ travel expenses.)

The deadline to apply for the 2024 Leadership Academy is Friday, March 8. Learn more and apply at nahb.org/academy.
