2020 Leadership Forum Agenda

About the IES Leadership Forum
The IES Leadership Forum is a full day program designed by the IES Leadership Forum Committee. The purpose of the workshop is to help leaders, at all levels of the Society, effectively work with volunteers and strengthen their leadership skills. The committee focuses on topics to help the attendee become more effective when they return to their respective section/committee such as time management, team building, project management, communication, and leadership skills.

Who Can Attend?
All are welcome! Recommended attendees include new IES Section officers, new board members, and committee chairs. However, you do not need to be a current Section officer or committee member to register for the program. In addition, the forum is also great for IES Members and volunteers who want a refresher on the Society or those who want to share their successes as an IES Member. We encourage anyone seeking to improve upon their leadership skills, and every year the forum offers new content and new presenters.

The Leadership Forum Committee
The Leadership Forum Committee is chaired by Jared A. Smith and is comprised of around 15 member volunteers. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to Rama Rejman (, Leadership Forum Staff Liaison.
