IACLEA Leadership Institutes Set for Winter 2020

Participants in the 2019 EDI class work in small groups to advance their leadership skills.You may have sun and heat on your mind now, but “winter is coming,” as Game of Thrones fans know, and with it come the premier leadership institutes in campus policing and public safety! IACLEA’s First-Line Supervisor Institute (FLSI) will take place January 7–10, 2020, at the University of Houston (Texas); and the Executive Development Institute (EDI) will take place March 24–27, 2020, at the University of Nevada, Reno.

The FLSI curriculum is designed with campus police and public safety supervisors and the supervisors of tomorrow in mind. This 3½ day class covers topics such as the fundamentals of leadership, transitioning to a supervisor’s role, effectively managing employees, emerging trends, managing crises, and much more.

The 2020 course will be the second presentation of the now-annual class. Participants in 2019’s inaugural class raved about it. Mike Vena of American University (Washington, DC) said,

“In 30 years of law enforcement, this was the best training I’ve ever had. I should have had this training in 1997 when I got my first promotion.”

EDI’s focus is on campus police and public safety command staff, newly promoted command staff, and those with the potential to be promoted to command staff levels. EDI is also 3½ days, but will take participants through more advanced conversations around leadership, crisis management, and more.

EDI has been a highly rated IACLEA class for many years, with one past participant commenting, “The topics/instructors were outstanding. I have been in a leadership position since 1992, and I thought, pound for pound, this was one of the most valuable courses I have attended.”

Many thanks to our good friends at Allied Universal for their generous sponsorship of the Executive Development Institute.

FLSI and EDI will benefit both sworn and non-sworn personnel, including civilian staff (communications, analysts, etc.). Annual courses are deliberately kept small (50 or fewer) so that attendees can participate in the instruction and easily network with each other.

Both courses reach capacity quickly. Look for early-bird registration to open this fall and take advantage of it! As always, IACLEA members will receive a significant discount on top of the early-bird registration discount.
