ASAE Press Release

WASHINGTON- Twelve scholars have been chosen to join the Diversity Executive Leadership Program (DELP) as the class of 2013–2015. DELP gives individuals from underrepresented segments of the association profession an opportunity to advance into the ranks of leadership in association management by providing networking opportunities, educational programs, and career guidance.

“Congratulations to the new DELP class, a diverse group of talent," said ASAE President and CEO John H. Graham IV, CAE. "This leadership program is a great opportunity to raise the visibility of their contributions within the association community."

Gladys Marrone, BIA Government Relations Director, was awarded one of the 12 positions
DELP is a two-year program which includes a more dynamic learning experience to prepare the scholars for future leadership roles. Although the program is officially two years long, many consider themselves as DELP scholars for life and continue to give back to the new members and the association community.

Graham added, “We also recognize and want to thank the Detroit Metro Convention and Visitors Bureau for their continued support of this important program in helping us fulfill our commitment to developing diverse + inclusive leaders within the association industry,” added Graham.

DELP is exclusively sponsored by the Detroit Metro Convention and Visitors Bureau. DMCVB is also an ASAE strategic partner.
