Emerging Leaders

Wednesday September 28th 9-11AM

This year’s UPCEA West emerging leader session brings together a well-recognized group of seasoned, expert leaders who we all admire. Each will be facilitating a table discussion on one of the following topics. Participants will have a chance to “speed date” through a few of the table topics of their choice and come away with templates, processes, and more in addition to building a network of leaders to reach out to throughout the year.
