NMHC Emerging Leaders Group
Open to Under-40 Employees (with 5 Years of Experience) of NMHC Member Firms
NMHC’s Emerging Leaders Group is designed to cultivate future leaders in the apartment industry. The program offers national and regional networking events that allow emerging leaders an opportunity to meet and interact with their peers. It also provides forums where participants can meet and learn from top industry leaders who share their insight, lessons learned and steps taken to achieve their success.
Participation in Emerging Leaders activities is available to all employees from NMHC member firms who are under the age of 40 and have at least five years experience. Because the program is primarily an open networking program, member firms may have as many young leaders as they would like sign up. There is no limit on the number of employees who can be added to our database.

Currently, the Emerging Leaders Program hosts two types of events—a Speaker Series that features industry leaders in a fireside chat format followed by a reception and standalone regional networking receptions. To create high-level networking opportunities, participation is typically limited to approximately 75 people.
