Dear NAMIC Supporter:  
 
Nominate a high-potential executive of color to participate in the NAMIC Executive Leadership Development Program (ELDP) 2017-2018 Class XVII by July 28! 
 
 
"I feel fortunate for having been able to participate in the NAMIC ELDP program. Through the various classes I was able to gain exposure to parts of the media industry I don't get to interact with often. Other classes and assignments allowed self-reflection and offered tools to help me grow both as a professional and individual. The bonus is you also meet great leaders within the industry that you build close friendships with."
 
Gil Torres
VP, Legal and Business Affairs
A+E Networks
ELDP Class XVI 
 
  
 
Remember, if you're a non-member and attend a local NAMIC event, join on the spot and receive 10% off your NAMIC membership! Inquire at the event.
 
 
Read! Watch! Share! Post! Like! Tweet! Retweet! Attend!
