Leadership Training Academy

A&WMA Volunteer Leaders—Get the tools you need to be an effective leader, plan engaging programs, and grow your section or chapter.

The annual Leadership Training Academy in Pittsburgh, PA, April 24–26, 2020 is cancelled. We are thankful to the faculty who were working toward producing this very meaningful annual event targeting the development of the Association’s volunteer leaders. It is with a heavy heart that we relay this message, but it is now inadvisable and impossible to hold this year’s Academy.  All registrants will be notified by email. We look forward to seeing you in Pittsburgh in April 2021.

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. 

Learn how A&WMA operates, how you can become a better leader, and best practices from other sections and chapters. 

Your registration fee 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. 

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