2024 Leadership Institute

Aviation Institute of Maintenance
July 8 - 12, 2024  |  Chicago, IL

The Leadership Institute is one of the most well-respected training conferences in postsecondary education and has a long history of graduating top-ranking alumni who have gone on to become school presidents, owners, and industry leaders. 

Delivering quality education to our students, and guiding them toward successful careers, begins with leaders like you—campus presidents/directors, department directors, and other campus personnel seeking to increase their knowledge across campus departments. At the CECU Leadership Institute, attendees will be exposed to all aspects of operating a campus, including but not limited to: admissions, financial aid, marketing, campus finances/budgeting, academic support, leading staff, community and government relations, and more!

The CECU Leadership Institute exceeded all of my expectations in every way possible. The presenters were fantastic. It was evident that only the best of the best were invited to share their knowledge and expertise. The attendees themselves were a vibrant and engaging group. It was a privilege to connect with like-minded professionals. The CECU staff meticulously arranged the event, and it was evident that no detail was overlooked. Beyond the scheduled sessions, the conference also provided ample opportunities for informal networking. I left the week energized and excited to implement new ideas and a growth mindset.
