Young Leadership Council


The YLC was developed to help our members develop and retain high-potential employees in all functional areas. During the two year program, young leaders receive professional development opportunities through discussions and presentations on a wide range of topics including negotiating, customer service and leadership.

Graduates leave the program more prepared for added responsibility and well-equipped for the next step in their career.

Recent Areas of Focus

  • What, How and Why-Based Leadership in Today’s VUCA World
  • Career Management
  • Automotive Industry Updates
  • Global Program Management Leadership
  • How to Create an Inclusive Workplace using Coaching and Mentoring

The YLC is open to OESA supplier and affiliate member companies. The dues for this two-year program are $3,500 per year, per individual council member. Members are nominated by their executives. YLC nominees should be on a “leadership track,” and generally be under the age of 38 years in age. Nominees may come from any functional area including finance, sales, marketing, manufacturing, purchasing, logistics, communications, engineering, etc.
