Overview for Fellows Forum

An ACT-IAC Opportunity: Building the 21st Century Workforce Leader


This meeting is open to all ACT-IAC Fellows, Associates (present and former), NexUS, and current Voyagers.

Purpose: To explore, as a group, how we will have to change as leaders over the next decade.

Expected Outcome: Leave the Forum with a baseline of leadership skills necessary to navigate the changing landscape and the basis for an initial roadmap of how to develop these skills in emerging leaders!

IF YOU ARE REGISTERED FOR ELC, THE FELLOWS FORUM IS ALREADY INCLUDED IN YOUR REGISTRATION FEE!

 

Fellows "24 Hour Special"

AND you may have noticed that many of the Fellows events are happening between the Partners graduation at lunch on Tuesday and the Fellows Forum Wednesday morning – SO, we have developed a Special Fellows “24 hour day rate” to attend ELC from noon on Tuesday (includes lunch with Partner Graduation, Afternoon Sessions at ELC, evening at the Fillmore, Fellows After Party AND the Fellows Forum on Wednesday!)

  • The 24 hour rate for Industry is $695 for IAC members and $1095 for non-members.
  • The Government 24 hour rate is $295.


Two ways to participate – pick one and be there!
