Young Leaders Group

Emerging Leaders Group (ELG) was established for the purpose of developing a network of “young” professionals who are in or moving up to a leadership role; who believe in the value of Association participation; who are willing to invest time in advancing this profession; and who value exposure to new mentors and ideas.

Do you have frontline staff or managers with potential for leadership development and growth? 
Do you have staff members looking for opportunities for networking and learning opportunities?
Encourage them to join the Emerging Leaders group
an informal gathering of “tomorrow’s leaders” who self-direct the topics and discussions, and who learn from each other on their professional journey.

The ELG offers unique opportunities for networking with peers while gaining exposure to senior professionals in a mentorship capacity. The ELG is the “next generation” for graduates of the Care Providers of Minnesota’s Foundation’s Leading4Life Leadership Fellowship program, as well as other interested members who have not gone through that program.
