    Moving into the Future   - The Power of Transformational Leadership

    Come join us for the 2018 IACCA Annual Conference in Green Lake this October!  Starting with a dynamic keynote given by Lori Hoffner of Supporting CommUnity, we will explore the differences between transactional leadership and transformational leadership.  From there, we have the opportunity to network with other professionals and improve the leadership potential in ourselves and our staffs through a series of workshops and discussion sessions designed to highlight the vast and varied areas in camp and conference center life.  We will explore leadership in all areas of center management, from how to run successful fundraising campaigns, to marketing, to program development, to facilities management, to personnel, to food service and hospitality.  We can all Move Into The Future together.  Registration now open.

      Wether you're already leading a group of staff day to day or you want to prepare for you're future role in management, the IACCA Staff Leadership course will give you the tools you need to become a better staff leader. Our instructors will use their years of knowledge and experience in conference center administration to bring you the current best practices in staff leadership that will help challenge and grow you as a leader.

      This course will be taught in IACCA's brand new blended learning format. Students will meet for three online instruction and group synthesis classes. Between each class, the students will be given follow-up work. This follow-up work could consist of articles to read, a writing prompt, or something else. Students will then use this follow-up to guide their group synthesis during the next class.
