September 15 – Leadership Retreat

Being able to think strategically for your association can be challenging if you are also stuck in the minutiae of daily tasks and operations. In the general session, you’ll learn how to connect the day-to-day with the strategic plan, and how to influence the strategic plan from all levels (CEO, VP, Director). We’ll discuss strategic thinking and how it can relate to all aspects of the association.

During the management session specifically for CEOs, you’ll discuss how to provide engaging and meaningful work for your staff. We’ll talk about empowering your staff, breaking down silos for better collaboration and overcoming the challenge of lack of advancement opportunities to keep your staff happy.

If you are not a CEO you’ll get to participate in small group facilitated discussions. There will be 4–6 people per group, and you’ll leave with valuable insight on a variety of leadership topics and 3–4 professional connections with your other group members.

Attend this one-day retreat to connect with and learn from other Indiana association leaders.
