HOUSTON (March 22, 2012) – The Community Leadership Institute Lone Star College System recently hosted the Association of Leadership Professionals for its regional conference, entitled “Reflect, Rekindle, and Renew”.
The conference, held at The Woodlands Resort and Conference Center, brought together directors and executive directors of leadership organizations from around the country to participate in the first-of-its kind peer-driven round table discussions.
“We were able to bring leaders in the field, decision makers and change agents into one room to discuss future goals,” said Kay Fitzsimons, director of Community Leadership Institute for LSCS. “The unique format was driven by peer discussion and allowed for those of us in the trenches to engage in deep and meaningful discussion that we can take back to our leadership programs.”
“ALP greatly appreciates the opportunity to partner with the LSCS Community Leadership Institute to bring together professional leaders from across the country to participate in this unique learning venue”, said Lura Hammond, the ALP association manager. “Texas hospitality was truly displayed from The Woodlands Resort and Conference Center to our host. This environment provided the attendees an avenue to connect for learning, sharing and recharging.”
