What is the SITE Young Leaders' Program?
The SITE Young Leaders' Program is a global community of industry professionals aged 35 years or younger with less than 5 years of experience in the incentive travel industry. By participating in the SITE Young Leaders' Program, individuals will receive education and networking opportunities that appeal directly to those who are new to the industry. Our mission: to create a strong group of individuals who will not only become leaders in SITE and their local SITE Chapters, but in the greater industry as a whole.
To learn more about how to become a member, please email SITE@SITEglobal.com.
SITE Young Leaders are delighted to announce the launch of a brand new mentorship program - Mentoring Members. This exciting new program is designed to provide young leaders with connections across our SITE Global community, in order for them to develop their careers within the incentive industry. The program offers opportunities to collaborate with different sectors within the incentive industry, with people from different chapters, and with people who have years of incentive experience.

SITE Young Leaders' Conference
Since SITE Young Leaders’ program started over 15 years’ ago, the YL conference has been a much anticipated annual event, bringing Young Leaders face to face from all over to world. Life long friendships were forged as careers developed and we’re proud to repor that our current board includes many alumni of our YL program. Aoife Delaney, CIS, CITP, president of SITE in 2021 and Kevin Edmunds, CIS, CITP, president of SITE in 2022 are both proud and enthusiastic alumni. A notable characteristic of SITE’s YL annual conference is that it is “for Young Leaders, by Young Leaders. This ensures that content is always relevant to our new generation of incentive travel professionals.
