Event Details



What do you think about when someone says we are going on a voyage?  Most people say excitement and enlightenment.  The Voyagers program takes you on that journey including the excitement of networking with government and industry people, and the enlightenment of learning how to be a great leader.  The very first Voyagers Class began their journey in 2005, over 15 years ago.  We will explore with them where they are now and how Voyagers changed their careers and their lives.  This 2020 class started on that same path before life sent us all on in a new direction.  This new challenge in everyone’s life is called COVID-19.  We will explore how leadership has been challenged and changed because of the virus and gain insight into where leadership is going after this trip is finally over.

Voyagers Graduation and COVID-19 

Thank you for visiting our event page to register for Voyagers Graduation 2020. Like many of you, we are deeply concerned about the current outbreak associated with Coronavirus COVID-19. Out of an abundance of caution for everyone’s safety, we have decided to hold Voyagers Graduation on August 17 in a fully virtual format. 

Please visit our ACT-IAC Coronavirus Resource Center to help keep you abreast of the status of upcoming ACT-IAC events and to view information provided to us by government agencies.
