Zac VanOverbeke completes Christopher Kelley Leadership Development Program

We are very proud to announce IDS’ own Zac VanOverbeke has just completed the 2018 – 2019 AIA Detroit Christopher Kelley Leadership Development Program.  In its second year in Detroit, the CKLDP selects 16 emerging, local AEC industry leaders to foster relationships and engage in productive industry conversations.

Over the course of the nine-month program, the program members work with one another to facilitate and attend monthly day-long workshops where, Zac explains, “even though we have a range of diverse experiences, we were unified and driven to create an educational environment where we could all learn… Not once was an individual judged or discredited, this type of open discourse gave us the opportunity to see unique perspectives into many issues facing the industry.”

The 2018 – 2019 Detroit CKLDP concluded last Friday, May 3 with a presentation focused on productivity and emerging technologies led by Zac and fellow program-member Leland Curtis from Smithgroup’s Detroit chapter.

IDS wants to congratulate the entire 2018 – 2019 AIA Detroit Christopher Kelley Leadership Development Program cohort and look forward to seeing the success of these industry leaders.  Thank you to all those who participated.
