Rising Leaders Network

Rising Leaders Network

The Rising Leaders Network is geared to multifamily and commercial property managers with less than five to seven years of industry experience. Launched in 2011, this program has drawn nearly 100 AOBA-member property managers (both commercial and multifamily) who expressed a desire to enhance their professional development skills, build a network of peers, and become more engaged in AOBA.

The 2014 program features 3 afternoon sessions on April 2, April 17 and April 29. Each session will be led by expert Mary Abbajay, The Careerstone Group, and will run from 2:00pm to 5:00pm at the Capital Hilton (16th and K Streets, NW). The 2014 program has just a few spaces left.
