Leadership Forum

We will address leadership in two ways. Looking outward, W. Todd Groce of the Georgia Historical Society will suggest strategies to transform your history institution into a community leader. How can you make your organization relevant and entrepreneurial and on par with the other power brokers in your city and state so that history has a place at the table? Focusing inward, Dan Yaeger, Executive Director of the New England Museum Association, will explore the practice of mindful leadership. With mindfulness, leaders are better able to focus on the things that most matter: pursuit of mission, team building, interpersonal relationships, and organizational and personal health. Lunch and a continental breakfast are included.
Co-Chairs: W. Todd Groce, President and CEO, Georgia Historical Society, Savannah, GA, and Dan Yaeger, Executive Director, New England Museum Association, Arlington, MA
