2021 Leadership ForumThe 2021 Leadership Forum will be totally virtual. This year’s 2020 Forum began with face-to-face sessions for the first three months, and then transitioned to Zoom sessions. We learned what works and what doesn’t and we will use those lessons-learned to make the 2021 Forum even better. As we move further into the year, we’ll assess the safety of scheduling a few optional, in-person, social gatherings beyond the virtual learning sessions. We hope an all virtual Leadership Forum will make participation accessible for our mid-career members regardless where they live in Minnesota.
Schedule. The 2020 virtual Forum will have shorter sessions than other years – each from one to four hours long – and scheduled twice a month from February through July.
Topics covered will include:
- leadership styles and values
- foundations of intercultural development
- motivation and engagement
- leadership stories/case studies
- future trends and advocacy
- synthesis through application and implementation
Eligibility. AIA Minnesota membership, licensed, with a minimum of ten years total career experience.
Application deadline. 5:00 pm, Monday, November 30, 2020
