Leadership Institute


Take Your Leadership to the Next Level!

Today’s successful leaders know that our increasingly connected world, and the fast pace of change, require new ways of thinking, new skills and new tools. The Aging Network is no different—we are faced with unprecedented opportunities and challenges—and must tap into the full potential of our diverse and passionate leaders to navigate the changes we face. The n4a Leadership Institute is just the experience to help you do that!

Join us for n4a’s acclaimed Leadership Institute. You’ll gain new insights into yourself and be challenged and energized in a supportive environment with peers from across the country. You’ll develop new skills to:
  • Increase your effectiveness working with teams and partners
  • Bring intention and commitment to addressing the challenges you and your agency face
  • Act strategically and with confidence
  • Stay refreshed and energized for the long-haul
The program will include special events, including alumni network activities throughout the year and a special follow-up session at the n4a Annual Conference in July.

At the intensive two-and-a-half-day session in February, you will:
  • Complete a leadership self-assessment
  • Learn new ways to communicate effectively
  • Develop your toolbox for creative problem-solving and planning
  • Network with peers and leaders from the Aging Network
After the session, you will continue to develop your leadership with the support of:
  • A small peer learning group
  • Alumni webinars on critical leadership topics
  • A special workshop at the n4a Annual Conference in July
  • A luncheon and panel discussion for all alumni of the Leadership Institute
Tuition for the Leadership Institute is $1,300. Your tuition covers the cost of all sessions, materials, three nights lodging at the conference center, most meals during the Institute (Thursday night dinner on your own) and follow-up activities.

Dates for the 2019 Leadership Institute have been set! n4a members will have the opportunity to join AAA and Title VI program colleagues in Washington, DC from February 20-22, 2019. Stay tuned for application details!
