senior-level support network

senior-level support network

The ACPA Senior-Level Community of Practice (SLCoP) coordinates and hosts the Senior-Level Support Network. Our monthly conversations are to discuss concerns and issues facing those in leadership positions across institutional size, type, and location. These low-key conversations are broadly themed with space for additional topics, relationship building, and unique or shared questions. Conversations are scheduled for the 3rd Thursday of each month at 3:00 p.m. Eastern. Pre-registration required. Register to receive the access link(s) to the monthly conversations taking place.

This network is complimentary for ACPA Members and $179 for non-members, which includes one year of ACPA Membership.
