ASAE Launches Applications for DELP 2019-21 Class

ASAE has opened the call for association professionals to apply for the 2019–2021 class of the Diversity Executive Leadership Program (DELP). Deadline for submissions is Monday, March 11. The Detroit Metro Convention and Visitors Bureau has been the exclusive sponsor of DELP since 2001.

“DELP is a vital program to the association industry. It helps associations identify and develop motivated leaders that fuel organizational success,” said ASAE President & CEO John H. Graham IV, FASAE, CAE. “The continued support of Larry Alexander and the Detroit Metro CVB over the last 18 years has made the association community stronger by every measure.”

DELP is an accelerated leadership program of education, mentoring, and volunteer service in the association community. Candidates who have at least three years of mid-senior level association management experience or at least one year of experience as an association CEO (as of the date of their application) and are members of a racial/ethnic minority group, lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender, or have a disability are encouraged to apply.

During this two-year program, 12 DELP scholars will experience membership and volunteer service in ASAE. They will also have access to industry leaders who could serve as career coaches or mentors.
