Keys to Leadership Success for New Association Managers

Join us in this engaging presentation as we unveil a strategic framework for transforming association managers into leaders within your association. Discover the leadership potential within your current teams and master the art of developing potential leaders. Through real-world examples, explore the concept of creating experiences for your team before they step into a new role. Cultivate trust and increase engagement across your entire association by building working relationships without hierarchies. Witness the remarkable shift from dependence to a culture of empowered and autonomous action. As you embrace this framework, you'll equip your association with the tools they need to flourish.

After attending this session, participants will be able to:

  • Uncover leadership potential in your existing team and develop future leaders with examples of offering opportunities to gain experience before moving to a new role.
  • Develop valuable working relationships that build trust and increases engagement with your entire team.
  • Focus your efforts on uncovering obstacles and then removing them as your team moves to next level performance.

The VSAE Community Service Committee has selected Boots to Suits as the charity raffle recipient this month. Established in 2014, Boots to Suits is a clothing program for all male and female Virginia veterans who have or will be transitioning from military life to civilian careers. They provide veterans with two complimentary career outfits, enabling them to look and feel their best for job interviews and non-military work environments. Military spouses of Wounded Warriors who are job-seeking and the main household provider are also eligible for this opportunity. Boots to Suits is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization. 

Raffle tickets will be sold at the event to raise money for this worthy cause. The winner of the charity raffle receives Overnight Waterview accommodations with breakfast for 2 people the following morning along with a $100.00 gift certificate to Admiral's Steakhouse at Rivers Casino.
