The HFES Executive Council invites Full, Early-Career Associate, and Student members to apply for the 2023 Emerging Leaders Program to participate in the Executive Council meeting to be held at the annual meeting this October in Washington, DC. This program is aimed to promote the professional development of potential leaders in HFES and to educate them about the business matters that take place during a meeting of the Executive Council. Two individuals will be selected.
The Leadership Development Committee is leading this effort to support individuals in their journeys to become leaders within their profession and foster future leaders in HFES. This special opportunity will provide a way for selected Emerging Leaders to develop connections with members of the Executive Council and others. Selected attendees will have the opportunity to be involved in all discussions, provide feedback and viewpoints, and will be paired with and mentored throughout the meeting by an Executive Council member. The selected mentees will arrive at the meeting on Friday (October 20) to meet with their mentor. They will attend the Executive Council meetings on Saturday and Sunday (October 21 and 22). HFES will pay for two nights of lodging (room fee plus taxes) at the meeting hotel and roundtrip advanced purchase economy class airfare. Expenses associated with participation in the Annual Meeting are not covered. Selected individuals are required to register to attend the meeting.
Criteria: Member applicants need to be in good standing as a Student Affiliate, Early Career Associate, or full HFES member (for less than five years) to qualify. Submissions on behalf of others are also accepted with the applicant’s awareness and agreement. Each nomination should include a short paragraph on why the nominee is a good candidate for this program (3,000 character limit including spaces).
Nominations will be reviewed by the Leadership Development Committee. They will select up to two HFES members to invite to the Executive Council meeting. Please submit nominations by 5:00 PM EDT on July 21, 2023.
