FELI Intent to Apply
The Florida Engineering Leadership Institute (FELI) was created with the mission to transition engineering professionals into community professionals and leaders within our societies, communities, and workplaces — an important step in realizing our ultimate
goal of professional engineers helping to shape society worldwide.Through its initial 10-month class, FELI enhances the leadership skills of its participants and sets out a clear pathway to put these skills into practice serving our profession and
our communities. FELI also provides networking across the current and past classes, serving as an outreach group to business and community leaders. By fostering interaction that puts training into practice, FELI achieves its mission to“Transform Leadership Opportunities into Reality.”
Why Join FELI?
FELI runs from November through August and consists of six sessions held in key cities throughout Florida. Each session focuses on a different aspect of leadership, ranging from development of personal leadership skills to team building, through interactive
sessions and first hand accounts from experts in their respective fields.
Four of the six programs begin with a reception on Thursday evening, meet all day Friday, and conclude at noon on Saturday. Often there is an optional golf or other outing offered
on Thursday which we encourage current FELI class members and invite FELI Alumni to attend. One session is held in conjunction with the Professional Engineers Legislative Days in Tallahassee and gives students the opportunity to see Florida government
in action as well as personally meet their state representatives. The final session is held concurrently with the FES | ACEC-FL Annual Summer Conference where graduation is celebrated.
Tuition information is released in conjunction with the opening of the FELI Class applications each Summer. It covers the program costs such as speakers and select food & beverage meals. Students will be required to cover the cost of travel, hotel
related, and extra food & beverage expenses. A full breakdown of these costs will be outlined for those interested in applying for the program.
