By Stephen Robinson, Chair, Leadership Development Committee  |  June 3, 2019

As you know, the work of our association is accomplished by a combination of our great ACPE staff and a large number of volunteers who give their time, energy, passion, and talent to our good work. The Leadership Development Committee continues to focus our energy on nurturing and preparing leaders, and helping to provide our board, commissions, and committees with competent leaders who reflect the complex diversity of our entire ACPE membership. You can find job descriptions and other leadership resources here.

As we enter the third year of our new governance structure, we have successfully built classes that will sustain continuity and provide opportunities for new leaders every year.

In November, the ACPE Board of Directors will appoint leaders to open positions on our various committees, including:
