Empower Your Organization’s Next Generation of Leaders
Cosponsored by ECIA and ERA, the Spark Professional Development Program offers two compelling levels designed to help up-and-coming professionals grow their abilities and advance their careers in the electronics components industry. It’s important that our young professionals continue to build leadership and professional skills. This year, SPARK will be a virtual professional development series that explores the electronic component industry, leadership styles, organizational culture, building a personal brand and much more.
Your employees will create new connections, gain valuable insights, self-awareness, fresh competencies and profitable new ideas to help them — and your business — grow into a rewarding future.
Spark 2021 was held virtually this year over a 5‑week period, 4 hours per week. Moving forward, it will be held at the EDS Leadership Summit in Las Vegas in May. Participants are nominated by their company’s management and take part in networking opportunities, career-building seminars and personal-growth workshops led by top industry experts. The cost to participate in Spark 1.0 is $500/attendee.
Spark 2.0 is the next step. Held concurrently with the annual ECIA Executive Conference, Spark 2.0 provides participants an intensive schedule of advanced seminars and presentations, lively round tables with industry movers and shakers and mentoring opportunities.
