Next Defining Moment Overview
SPRING 2016: APRIL 1-3
@ STEVENSON UNIVERSITY IN MARYLAND
HOSTED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH ACUI REGION VII
Usually titled the Collegiate Empowerment Conference, this go-around, we're partnering with the amazing ACUI Region VII (Association of College Unions International) to bring you Your Next Defining Moment for just $125 for ACUI members and $165 for non-members. Yeah, that's right; it's a quarter the cost of a traditional three-day conference. That's just for you!
WE'VE ALL HAD DEFINING MOMENTS IN OUR LIVES. It’s easy to look back to discover why you are who you are. But what if you could predict the future? What if you could look forward and intentionally create your next defining moment? What if you could help your friends and the organizations that you’re a part of also create their next defining moment. Now that would be something.
Personal leadership is about developing the mindset, knowledge, skills, and habits to live with energy and lead with authority while leading teams is about inspiring others to achieve maximum performance towards a collective vision. A vision is one of the things that all great leaders have in common: the ability to see the end, a general destination in the future that provides inspiration and direction. This is where you’ll find Your Next Defining Moment.
AN INTEGRATED EXPERIENCE
Your Next Defining Moment provides a fresh take on the typical conference experience where participants travel from one session to the next without any connection between them. The focus here, instead, is on integrated and connected sessions within an expansive context where each is focused on providing clarity and direction to help students (and professionals) create their Next Defining Moment. Throughout the experience, participants will attend keynotes followed by a choice of Collegiate Empowerment feature sessions and 30-minute ACUI Mentoring Roundtables. The workshop will conclude by bringing everything full-circle and integrating material from the entire workshop.
LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT IS LIKE TAKING A SHOWER…if you only do it once, you’ll stink. Our goal is to help you take more showers together. (Okay, maybe that’s over-the-top, but we all need more leadership development at any stage in the game.) This workshop is intended to complement the standard nuts and bolts training that you cover with your students on campus.
