Leaders Program

Enroll Your Rising Managers in AMSA’s Leaders Program


Do you have a high performer who could benefit from leadership skills training? Build your company’s future by enrolling them in AMSA’s Leaders Program. Safeguard the future of your business and the industry by recognizing, rewarding and developing employees who are ready to take the next step in their career.

This course is invaluable and has been recognized by graduates and AMSA members alike for its practical tips and tools. Successful applicants take part in a five-month self-study course enabling the understanding and development of their leadership style, decision-making process, and communication skills within and outside of their organization.

In addition to completing the self-study program, participants interact with a learning cohort, complete an on-the-job project with input from their supervisors, and participate in a two-day boot camp in conjunction with AMSA’s Annual Education Conference & Expo.

According to Jimbo Loftin, Coleman’s vice president of quality, the program offered a great opportunity to “…reflect on how you make decisions and consider the future impact of each of these decisions on yourself, your local operation, and your entire company.”

Applicants for the program should be those individuals identified as future senior corporate executives and/or CEOs who should already be working in a management level position within their company, or those who are existing managers, strong entry level managers, or those individuals identified as potential future leaders who would benefit from industry-specific management skills and training. Applicants for the leaders portion of the program will need approval from their company’s senior executive.

The Moving & Storage Institute (MSI) will award four Leaders Program scholarships of $1,250 each to employees of small moving and storage companies, earning less than $3 Million (gross) annually, who are AMSA members in good standing. Scholarships will pay for half the tuition and a portion of expenses related to attending the Leaders Program seminar and AMSA’s Education Conference & Expo. Each candidate’s employer is expected to match and pay the remaining tuition.

Candidates applying for an MSI Leaders Program scholarship must include a copy of the company’s audited financial statements from the previous fiscal year with their application.
