The three-year NRCA Future Executives Institute (FEI) is built on 10 core areas essential to small-business operations: leadership, management, strategic planning, human resources, financial management, sales and marketing, roofing industry issues, risk management, family relationships/succession and personal-development skills. Content addressing these areas will be presented throughout the three years. A number of these disciplines build on one another.
Students enrolled in the institute will participate in a program during the International Roofing Expo and NRCA's annual convention. The program will address one or more of the core areas and provide time to share information about projects that participants have been working on since their institute meeting in the fall.
Participants will be responsible for completing a variety of challenging projects and assignments. Some will involve individual projects about each participant's company. Others will be team assignments with other class members.
The expectation is that the entire future executives group will complete the three-year institute together. Each fall, there will be a four- to five-day, face-to-face program, and during NRCA's annual convention, the class will reconvene to touch base and participate in an educational program.
Between face-to-face meetings, there will be projects and assignments. Potential projects will include assignments related to individual companies. Projects will be tailored to student experience and company needs.
Note: Course and scheduling subject to change.
