Nominate a Colleague for the ASCD Emerging Leaders Program

ASCD is seeking talented, influential, and active educators to join a select group comprising the next generation of ASCD leaders. Nominate a colleague by June 30, 2019, for the ASCD Emerging Leaders Program.
A good candidate for the program is:
  • An ASCD member.
  • An accomplished educator with 5–15 years of experience who wants to get more involved in ASCD and the education community as a whole.
  • A believer that each child deserves to be healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged.
  • Committed to servant leadership, contributing to the good of the profession.
  • The sort of person who finds more joy in the journey than the destination.
  • Seeking to network with a group of educators who are driven and passionate about education and boast a variety of backgrounds, roles, and experiences.
Anyone can nominate a candidate for the Emerging Leaders program. Once nominated, candidates are invited by email to complete an application. Self-nominations are not accepted. Completed applications are scored using a rubric focused on the program goals by a selection panel composed of ASCD staff and external reviewers who currently hold leadership positions within the organization. Finalists are forwarded to the executive director for approval, and the new class of emerging leaders is announced in September 2019.
