2018 LeadingAge Connecticut Leadership Academy
Going into its fifth year, the LeadingAge Connecticut Leadership Academy is a state based leadership program that will foster and encourage leadership development within the LeadingAge Connecticut and LeadingAge Rhode Island member organizations. LeadingAge Connecticut has made the commitment to this forward thinking leadership program to ensure that we are developing leaders that will carry on the mission of expanding the possibilities for aging.

Modeled after the national LeadingAge Leadership Academy program, LeadingAge Connecticut Leadership Academy provides a year-long transformational leadership development experience that is accessible and affordable. Transformational leadership is an inspiring and visionary leadership approach that creates significant change in the lives of people and organizations through strong relationships. Participants enrolled in the academy will be considered “fellows” and they will engage in a year-long leadership program that will include four two-day learning experiences scheduled throughout 2018.
