2011 Chapter Leaders Academy Schedule Set
The next Chapter Leaders Academy sessions are scheduled for January 21 to 23, 2011. These sessions are extremely valuable for any chapter officer but can also be of great service to newly elected officers and future chapter leaders. We encourage your chapter to consider participating. Past attendees have been overwhelmingly positive in their reviews and would recommend attendance to other chapter members. The academy sessions are provided free of charge. We’ll take care of your food, lodging, and local transportation. You’ll be responsible for the travel expenses to Oshkosh, but don’t let that stop you. If travel costs are an issue, let us know and we may be able to assist you.
We’re pleased to welcome EAA President and CEO Rod Hightower to the academy sessions. This will give you an excellent opportunity to meet him and talk about the future of our organization. Attendees will be among some of the first chapter leaders to spend time discussing chapter issues with Rod.
The sessions begin on Friday evening with dinner and social time, followed by a daylong discussion on many topics that challenge all chapters, including recruitment, programs, and fundraising. The academy concludes on Sunday with a half-day of meetings and another opportunity to discuss topics that may be of interest to your chapter. In addition, leaders meet many of the staff members they work with on a regular basis and other staff members who can be resources. For more information or to reserve a spot, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Registration for all 2011 sessions is now open. The dates for 2011 are January 21 to 23, February 18 to 20, March 11 to 13, April 1 to 3, and October 14 to 16. To register or receive more information, please e-mail email@example.com or call 920-426-4876.
Here’s a sample of some of the feedback the academy generated in the past year:
“I can’t imagine running a chapter without going through this program!”
“This has been some of the best use of my time (other than family events) that I can remember.”“A lot of wonderful ideas were generated for implementation in our chapter. This seminar was very beneficial."
