2019 Leadership Conference

November 2 - 3, 2019

Cedarbrook Lodge, Seatac

As per our discussion at the Annual Membership Meeting in Walla Walla, we will be resurrecting our Leadership Conference.  The objective of this conference is to:

  • develop and foster leadership for current and future leaders within the OPW
  • create a larger pool of effective leaders to improve and sustain succession
  •  better coordinate roles, and expectations within the organizational structure of the OPW
  • enhance camaraderie among leaders by collaborating jointly during the Leadership Conference 

We would also like to announce that we have contracted with Bob Harris, CAE to facilitate these conversations.  Bob has presented to the AOA Presidents' Council, and was very well received.  The information that he provides is fundamental in effectively leading an organization such as the OPW.  

Dates:Saturday, Nov 2nd:  12:30pm-6:00pm Sunday, Nov. 3rd:  9:00am - 3:00pm
Location:Cedarbrook Lodge, Seatac

Board of Trustees, Strategic Planning Committee, invited parties:Plan to attend both days
Society Presidents and selected team leaders:Attend only on Sunday 

Travel & Lodging: Cedarbrook has a shuttle to and from the Seatac airport for those coming in on flights. We will reimburse for travel expenses (flights and /or miles).  We will have a small block of shared double queen rooms (20) for those who are requested to be in attendance both days, and/or who are traveling from the far corners of the state. Due to budget restrictions, outside of this block of rooms, we will not be reimbursing for lodging.
