Leadership and Growth Summit

Professional development and leadership training for AEA leaders and potential leaders (formerly known as Summer Institute).

AEA’s Leadership and Growth Summit is coming up fast! Leadership and Growth Summit is the new name for Summer Institute. The event has been reimagined and redesigned to focus on equipping AEA leaders with everything they need to be powerful, visionary organizers in their schools and locals. 

We’re incredibly excited about the presenter line-up: 

  • 85% of the sessions are completely member-led or co-member-led
  • 70% of the sessions are led by at least one presenter who is a person of color
  • 60% of the sessions are led by at least one presenter who is a 1st time presenter

The summit will run from June 15-17 and will be at Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch. The event will kick off on Thursday, June 15 with registration and an opening session. Sessions will run all day on Friday and through 12:30 pm on Saturday. Meals and lodging will be covered for participants. 

For more information, contact the leaders of your local or your region's OC!
