Leadership & Management SIG


The mission of the LMSIG is to serve as a gathering place for idea sharing, best practice development and ongoing education for genetic counselors in leadership and/or management roles, and those who wish to acquire skills for such roles in the future. The LMSIG seeks to  serve as a resource for genetic counselors who are new and/or aspiring leaders or managers; provide current leaders/managers with discussions about challenges and successes, resources to build and foster skills, and data-sharing to help bolster efficiency and knowledge; and connect genetic counselors with leadership/management roles to each other in order to continue development of skills and contribute to best practice discussion.
