Am I An “Emerging Arts Leader”?

Although the Americans for the Arts’ Emerging Leader Network targets professionals new to the field who are 35 years of age or younger or who have less than five years of experience, EAL/LA welcomes anyone who is interested in contributing to, or will benefit from, our programs. There are no restrictions on age or time in the field. We welcome arts managers and creative industry workers, and are one of the few Emerging Leader networks to encourage artists to join our network.

What is the Admin Bar?

Once you’re a member you can quickly access EAL/LA‘s main features anywhere on the site by using the Admin Bar visible at the top of every page when you are logged in.

Lost Your Password?

If you have forgotten or lost your password, we can assign you a new temporary password which you can then reset.

Click on the “Lost Your Password?” link, which will prompt you to enter your username or email address. Once you have entered your username or email address click the “Get New Password” button and your username and link to reset your password will be emailed to you.

When you click on this link you will be redirected back to and another email will be sent to you with your username and a temporary password. Copy the temporary password and click on the link in the email to be redirected to the login page. Enter your username and paste your temporary password in the password field.

We recommend you change your temporary password to something you can remember. You can do this by clicking on the “Edit Profile” button, which will take you to your profile page. Then, click on the “Settings” link and here you can change your password to one that may be easier for you to remember. Don’t forget to click on the “Save Changes” button.

How Do I Remove My Profile?

If you want to permanently delete your profile, click on the “Delete Account” link in the “Settings” tab in your Profile. Mark the checkbox stating: “I understand the consequences of deleting my account.” Click on the “Delete My Account” button to complete removing your profile.

Warning: This is a permanent deletion and there is no way to restore your profile.
