The TASBO Emerging Leaders Program gives new and upcoming leaders the opportunity to hone their skills, build confidence in their leadership and communication styles, and successfully manage their careers, teams, and community relationships.

The 2024 Emerging Leader program includes six full days of training over six months. We kick off this year’s program at the Summer Solutions Conference in June. Sessions two and three are held at TASBO in September and December, respectively. Each cohort is capped at twenty-four participants.
