“Cultivating talent is how our industry succeeds,” says Kori Hemans, Chief Financial Officer at IECRM. “Our organization supports our member companies by helping them identify employees who are passionately focused and interested in growth. Our job is to train these hand-selected individuals to understand what is important, and how to engage in the vision of their company and this industry in order to make the vision more meaningful and successful.”

The program provides experiential workshops and discussions about personal leadership, government relations, technology, community service, and safety training.

“This leadership training is uniquely designed to help leaders-to-be get ready for new challenges and responsibilities,” says Kori. “Through role-playing, self-assessment, and other leadership development methods we help participants explore leadership roles as strategists, change agents, coaches, managers, communicators, mentors, and team members.”

IECRM is now accepting nominations from members for the 2020-2021 program. Please contact Kori Hemans ( for more information about how to become part of IECRM’s Emerging Leaders program or to nominate a candidate.
