SuperUser Account / Wednesday, June 20, 2018 / Categories: ATSSA, Innovation, Transportation Applications now open for ATSSA 2019 Leadership Program Inspire. Motivate. Empower. Be a leader in the roadway safety industry and develop your skills by participating in ATSSA’s 2019 Leadership Program. The three-day training is for ATSSA members only and will be held April 28-30, 2019 in Arlington, Virginia, offering an opportunity for industry leaders to recognize the potential of their organization, utilize the experience of employees in the organization, and improve performance management and efficiencies. Participants in the training will learn about different leadership styles, discover their own style, grow their business through professional development and network, and learn skills that they can take back to their organizations in the common goal of saving lives on our nation’s roadways. “I could probably start applying a lesson from each module we did. I realized I did a lot of day dreaming when talking to people. To be able to understand that and then consciously start working on actively listening to my employees and create better interactions with the people I’m working with is very useful,” said a 2017 Leadership Program participant. Modules for the 2019 program include leadership styles, association governance and strategic planning, personal communications, advocacy, and public relations and the media. “The best quality of [the presenters] was that they were an expert in their field and they not only taught it, but they lived it. It’s always best to learn from somebody who has had to utilize their own training,” said a 2017 Leadership Program participant. While participants are not required, those in the program are encouraged to attend ATSSA’s 2019 Legislative Briefing & Fly-In immediately following the program May 1-2 in Washington, D.C., to meet with legislators and advocate for roadway safety infrastructure investment. The deadline to apply for the program is December 31, 2018. To learn more about this ATSSA member program, or to apply, visit leadership.atssa.com.
