Leadership Academy

To thrive in the future, the fastener industry needs to develop and support the next generation of leaders. Therefore, the National Fastener Distributors Association (NFDA) and Young Fastener Professionals (YFP) are partnering to foster the industry’s future leaders.

We are pleased to bring to the event Shelly Alcorn, a futurist and thought-leader, who will facilitate a collaborative and highly interactive experience for Leadership Academy participants.

The biggest opportunities for younger professionals are to establish relationships early in their career, to continue learning (post-formal education), and to be involved in advancing their industry. The NFDA and YFP Leadership Academy will engage professionals from all generations, to ensure a pipeline of future leaders.



The first Leadership Academy took place September 10-11  ,2018 in La Mirada, CA. More information in regards to attendees and schedule or events can be found on the NFDA's website here. 



There are a multitude of sponsorship opportunities attached to this workshop ranging from $150-$500 per company. Even if you do not have employees attending, sponsoring the 2018 Leadership Academy is a great way to support the development of future leaders within the fastener industry!
