Leadership Institute Committee

The Leadership Institute fosters development of leadership skills among members, and encourages them to become leaders in their profession and in APS. The committee develops and coordinates programs and resources for this purpose. The Leadership Institute actively mentors APS members to achieve this goal. The Committee will coordinate programs and workshops focused on development of leadership and management skills. Such activity will occur in conjunction with the APS Annual Meeting, and apart from the Annual Meeting in select online or other resources. The programs should be designed to serve a broad range of the society’s membership. The Committee will work with APS headquarters staff and Council to engage new members to increase their awareness of the obligations and benefits of service and leadership on boards, committees and within other activities.
