October 18 - 21, 2018

This conference will focus on developing leaders that make up the global network of Seventh-day Adventist education and healthcare institutions. Effective leadership begins with understanding the roles and accountabilities of those who govern, manage, and lead an organization. Sessions will be interactive in a workshop-style setting to provide collaborative learning and develop practical plans to be applied at each institution. The conference also provides a venue for collaboration between sister institutions, by encouraging dialogue to share challenges, successes, and solutions and inspiring leaders to "embrace change.”

Co-sponsored by: Adventist Health International (AHI), Consortium of Adventist Medical Education Leaders (CAMEL), Department of Education, General Conference World Headquarters, Department of Health, General Conference World Headquarters, Loma Linda University Health (LLUH)
