The Executive Leadership Forum is an opportunity for retreat, reflection, and long-term planning specifically designed for the executive leaders of organizations advancing the cause of the arts at a local level—in particular local arts agencies, arts commissions, arts councils, and multi-arts service organizations. 

For more information and a complete description of the Executive Leadership Forum, please download the PDF document found here.

The 2016 Executive Leadership Forum will take place at the Sundance Resort in Utah, Wednesday, September 21 to Saturday, September 24, 2016.
