FMI Future Leader eXperience Participants, Co-Chairs, Group Leaders, Committee and Sponsors,

Thank you for your patience while we explored our options for the 2020 Future Leaders eXperience. We know the ongoing COVID-19 situation has presented challenges for many food retail organizations regarding professional development training. Now, more than ever, we are seeing the importance of having strong leaders in the food industry.  

Given this, it is our delight to bring you our powerful curriculum for developing strong leaders with our Future Leaders eXperience program powered by Root. Available exclusively as a virtual option, the 2020 program promises to provide attendees the same unparallel training we have to come to deliver every year.

Warm Regards,
Your Friends at FMI
