"Grooming Leaders, Growing Influence, Garnering Perspective"

To create a thriving community for young IHG owners (40 years old and under) to ensure representation within the Owners Association and with IHG. To provide development and growth opportunities and to foster collaborative relationships. 

The Emerging Leaders Network is an organization comprised of members of the IHG Owners Association and IHG corporate communities that provides a vehicle for young owners, operators and brand team members to develop their skills, network with other owners and provide younger generational perspective and input in critical decisions in support of improved owner ROI and achieving IHG’s objective of “Great Hotels Guests Love.”


The ELN focuses on three primary pillars:

Future of the Industry
Ensuring the voices of younger owners are present in order to provide unique perspective on OA priorities. There is also a focus on shaping future leaders within the Association and the industry.

Personal Growth and Development
Facilitating different experiences that help members to grow their leadership profile and skills set.

Fostering Collaboration
Creating opportunities for members to learn from one another, grow their businesses and build their network within the Association, IHG and the industry.
