I found the President Leadership Institute to be a powerful learning experience with both novice and seasoned serving Presidents from across Canada who offered much insight into the multitude of issues, challenges and solutions that each President is dealing with and each of us had something to offer and take away as new learning…. The session related to negotiating your next term contract was extremely meaningful and helpful and I look forward to more learning with and from my peers at next year’s President’s Leadership Institute
