Associations have the unique ability to enhance the personal and professional lives of individuals in virtually every business sector. Because associations are indispensable to industries, professions, and society, it's vitally important that people who work in associations have a full understanding of their nature and history.

This full-day course is part of ASAE's Association Management Week, a series of programs designed to build a strong understanding of the core functions of association management. Specifically designed for those who have fewer than five years of experience in the field, Developing Your Leadership Potential addresses the basics of leadership, especially as it pertains to membership organizations.

You’ll leave this course with a better understanding of leadership challenges and how membership organizations require both internal and external leadership to be successful. Equip yourself with concrete ideas on how to resolve a variety of conflicts and develop your own leadership potential.

Consider taking all five Association Management Week courses to earn the Certificate in Association Management.
