Leadership Training Academy

A&WMA Volunteer Leaders—Join us for the annual Leadership Training Academy in Pittsburgh! 

Friday, April 27, 2018, 1:00 pm ET through Sunday, April 29 at 12:00 pm.

Get the tools you need to be an effective leader, plan engaging programs, and grow your section or chapter!

This program was created exclusively for our volunteers to strengthen your leadership skills, give you ideas that can be implemented within your local member units committees, councils and boards, and provide you with outstanding networking opportunities.  

Nearly all of our current board members and committee chairs started their commitment to A&WMA with the Leadership Training Academy. This will be your connection to exciting ideas, essential tools, and exceptional people. 

Here are some of the things we will cover during interactive sessions: 
  • A&WMA's governance structure
  • Volunteer Recruitment and Management 
  • Strategic Planning 
  • Membership Recruiting and Reporting 
  • Conference and event planning 
  • Marketing and communications  
Your registration fee of $300 will cover all training sessions and materials, and food and beverages including Friday lunch, reception, and dinner, all three meals on Saturday, and breakfast on Sunday morning. You will have plenty of time to network with other members and see some of the sights of Pittsburgh, including the Point and PNC Park, ESPN's top rated baseball stadium in the country. 

Make your plans to ensure a representative (or two!) from your section or chapter can attend this exceptional workshop.
