The National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) has launched the IMPACT Leadership Group, which is a modification of its Young Leaders Program first launched in 2004.
The IMPACT group (which stands for Innovative, Motivated, Passionate, Active, Connected and Teachable) aims to provide education, leadership development training and networking opportunities to “support the personal and professional growth of emerging leaders” in the asphalt paving industry.
“The IMPACT Leadership Group is the best place for someone to develop the skills, connections, and knowledge needed to make a difference in the asphalt pavement industry,” says David White of Superior Paving in Virginia and chairman of the IMPACT program. “This group is designed for proven company leaders and for those who are still working their way up the ranks, and we are all focused on making our companies, our industry, and ourselves better.”
Plans are for the IMPACT Leadership Group to meet biannually, at NAPA’s midyear and annual meetings, and to hold an annual conference to discuss technological innovations, legislative issues, leadership training and networking. The annual conference is set for Sept. 22-24 at theWit Hotel in Chicago. More details are available here.
