About the Conference

The NTCCC Annual Fall Leadership Conference is the Consortium's kick-off event for the academic year and is sponsored by the North Texas Community College Consortium, the Consortium Board of Directors, and the Consortium Leadership and Renewal Academy (CLARA) Advisory Council.

With a focus on leadership in higher education, the Fall Leadership Conference is the inaugural meeting for the incoming CLARA cohort, as well as serving as the graduation event for the outgoing CLARA cohort. Featuring leadership-related keynote addresses, luncheon speakers, concurrent breakout sessions, and round-table discussions, the Fall Leadership Conference is valuable for anyone who is in a position of leadership in institutions of higher education, is interested in leadership positions, desires to be more effective and influential in their current position, wants to know the latest in leadership trends, is looking for an opportunity to meet, interact, and network with leaders from other area institutions of higher learning.

The Fall Leadership Conference is the setting for the first of three formal Board of Directors meetings for the academic year, installing the new Board Chairman, welcoming new members, and finalizing the budget and plans for the coming academic period. The Conference also plays host to many of the Consortium's standing committee meetings.
