Emerging Leadership Institute

The APAP Emerging Leadership Institute (ELI) is an intensive two and a half-day seminar that takes place during the pre-conference of the annual APAP|NYC conference. Each year, APAP invites a new cohort of approximately 25 individuals with 3-7 years of experience to participate in this program where they will learn about leadership and then take that knowledge and apply it first-hand.
