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 — inspiring leaders to "embrace change.”
