The International Downtown Association (IDA) selected 30 of the industry’s brightest professionals for the 2019 Emerging Leaders Fellowship (ELF) program. These senior staff members hail from 3 countries and 17 provinces or states, including Newcastle, UK; Vancouver, BC, Canada; Milwaukee, WI; San Francisco, CA; Austin, TX; New Haven, CT; Jacksonville, FL; and Denver, CO.
The Emerging Leader Fellowship is a week-long experiential program bringing together a cohort of IDA professionals from within the urban district management industry. The fellows learn essential leadership and place management skills and gain practical tools in the areas of place-based economic development, the live-work-play experience, and public-private partnerships.
A huge congratulations to Gavin Duffus for securing a place on the program!
