Associate Leadership Council (ALC) 

Benefits That Last a Lifetime

The Associate Leadership Council (ALC) is a 10-month leadership development program designed to inspire and educate future commercial real estate leaders in Dallas-Fort Worth.

Through ALC, young commercial real estate professionals come together for monthly leadership development programs and lunches, personalized training with the executive coaching firm Rose + Porterfield Group, and implement a community service project.

The education, networking, and experience gained in this relatively short timeframe often have a profound impact on participants’ careers for years to come.

Applications for the ALC Class of 2023 have closed.

Please note: Applicants must submit a pre-application, full application, commitment form, and all related materials by their deadlines to be eligible for consideration.
