DO NOT USE -- Emerging Leaders Program

New in 2013, GMA is excited to launch the Emerging Leaders program as a component of the CEO Leadership Forum.

The top leaders of the CPG industry have been invited to the CEO Leadership Forum and those CEOs have been asked to choose an emerging leader within their company to participate in a half-day of leadership development with their peers on July 17, in conjunction with the CEO Leadership Forum.

The ideal candidate would have the suggested tenure of two levels below (e.g., ‘Direct report to Direct Report’). GMA is expecting a diverse group of talent with experience in finance, sales and marketing and supply chain, just to name a few.

If you are a CEO Leadership Forum attendee, please designate who from your company should participate by replying to with their name and contact information. 

To optimize your time, the CEO Leadership Forum and Emerging Leaders programs have been scheduled in conjunction with the GMA Board of Directors meeting on July 17 and the joint industry Capitol Hill visits scheduled for July 18. 

Events will begin on Tuesday, July 16, with GMA committee meetings scheduled for that morning, and a reception and dinner for you and your spouse/guest at 6:00 pm. The official CEO Leadership Forum will run from 7:30 am – 12:00 pm on Wednesday, July 17, and will feature a keynote speaker and breakout sessions on topics such as growth, policy and talent.

We very much hope to see you in July to contribute to, and benefit from, this unique meeting of our industry. Registration will be open in just a few short days. In the meantime, to confirm your attendance, please contact Logan Kastner at (202) 637-8065 or
