Announcing a New Direction for AACP’s INterim Meeting: INfluence 2017

We’re doing more than changing the name of this important meeting: We’re changing the direction, to focus on leadership strategies for a wider audience. Every year we’ll bring important discussions and practical recommendations to enhance leadership development at every level of the Academy.

INfluence 2017, Feb. 25–28, at the Wyndham Grand Rio Mar Beach Resort & Spa in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico, represents the best of leadership development. Sessions will provide innovative approaches for current and emerging leaders, and will present tactics for success and opportunities for feedback and participation.

We aim to Inspire, Innovate and Invigorate. Join us for INfluence 2017: The AACP INterim Meeting. Registration opens soon.
