Future Leaders Ideas Lab Prepares Next Generation of Fabricators

If you work for an AISC-member fabricator and have recently moved into or anticipate moving into a senior management position during the next few years, the Future Leaders Ideas Lab is the event for you! Attendees will learn valuable leadership tools specific to the fabrication industry and have the opportunity to network and exchange ideas with their peers. Now in its third consecutive year, the event will take place October 20-21 in Philadelphia.

"Leaders generally have very few peers within their own environment to interact with,” said past attendee Rick Russel of Future Fabricating. “The opportunity to meet, network, share and validate means and methods of leadership is a priceless value that can be captured by participating in this AISC-sponsored event.”

Sessions will cover a wide range of topics including legal issues (with a focus on contracts), negotiation skills and new developments in fabrication software. New this year is a special session for attendees to meet in small groups with experienced industry leaders to explore real-life case studies and gain insight into critical management issues and how to deal with them.
