NFPA Executive Leadership Program Set to Provide Tools for Success

A few seats remain in the 2022/24 cohort of the NFPA Executive Leadership Program

Registration is open for the 2022/24 cohort of the NFPA Executive Leadership Program, presented in collaboration with the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University, and program cadence and session topics are now available.

“I use the majority of the learned topics a lot and I believe my leadership skills overall improved. I even hear from co-workers and team members that they notice a positive impact. I believe the cohort will have a future relationship that otherwise wouldn’t be possible.”
–Christian Eitel, Vice President of Engineering – BH North America, Bucher Hydraulics, 2020-21 Executive Leadership Program Participant
