About the Future Leaders Ideas Lab 

The AISC Future Leaders Ideas Lab is designed for fabricators who have either recently moved into or anticipate moving into a senior management position during the next few years. Attendees will learn leadership tools specific to the fabrication industry--but more importantly, will have the opportunity to discuss issues and share ideas with their peers in a non-competitive setting. 

Why Attend the Future Leaders Ideas Lab?

  • Forge connections across the industry
  • Build your professional network
  • Jump-start your role as an industry leader
  • Impress your boss!

You are the future of the steel industry, and the American Institute of Steel Construction wants to help you build a brilliant career.

We invite you to join an elite group of your peers at the Future Leaders Ideas Lab, an AISC program that's designed to give the next generation of fabrication management an opportunity to kick-start their rise through the ranks.

You'll learn leadership skills that are tailored specifically for the fabrication industry while forging lasting connections and sharing ideas about industry challenges in a non-competitive setting. You'll bring back information and strategies that will impress your colleagues--and, more importantly, your boss!
