Don’t miss this unique opportunity to develop skills needed to navigate an assessment office of the future.

Registration is now open for IAAO’s second annual Emerging Leadership Summit, set for April 2-3, 2020, at Cook County offices in Chicago. The Summit is designed to provide a powerful professional development opportunity for emerging leaders who have a desire to advance their careers in the assessment industry.

Participants will develop the skills needed to navigate the unique dynamics of a typical assessment office and discover leadership tools needed to guide an assessment office into the future. Cook County Assessor Fritz Kaegi will present on “Courage and Leadership Strategies.”

Topics include:

  • Emotional intelligence
  • The role of technology in leadership
  • Conflict resolution (Including managing complaints as outlined in Apendium Knowledge Area 6)
  • Public speaking and effective communication skills (Including public relations and communications as outlined in Apendium Knowledge Area 7)
  • Personality assessment
  • Leadership challenges and strategies (Including leading and managing the assessment office as outlined in Apendium Knowledge Area 5)
  • Participants will learn through a combination of interactive lectures, group discussions, active-learning exercises and panel discussions.


Who should attend?

ELS is designed for early to mid-career managers who have a desire to advance within the assessment profession. Early to mid-level managers in their first or second leadership roles are ideal attendees.

Attendees will come away with a new network of peers and colleagues with a shared purpose who can support each other in their careers long after the summit is over. Many of the programs will tie into the IAAO Apendium series of books on property assessment knowledge, available through Amazon.
