Leadership UA is proud to organize and sponsor several events for those who live and/or work in our community.

Upcoming Events: 

Leadership UA is excited to announce we will be a host for Leadercast LIVE a full day simulcast seminar of world class speakers on leadership. Ticket information is available below or by contacting us!

The world is looking for great leaders to follow.

May 4, 2018

In order to become those leaders to the outside, we have to lead ourselves first. We must walk the walk. It’s like the flight attendants tell us – please remember to wear your own oxygen mask before helping others.

In 2018, Leadercast will be focusing on that very concept. How do you lead yourself effectively? How do you develop your core principles and values so that your leadership is an outpouring of your innermost self? And how much more will those who follow you benefit from your leadership when you lead yourself well?

Throughout the year, a variety of live events, digital learning platforms and interactive tools will help you explore these questions and more understand how to lead yourself first, so you can lead others well.

At Leadercast Live in 2018, the speakers who will take the stage will inspire you to lead yourself, so you can lead your families, your organizations and your communities.

This includes author and speaker Michael Hyatt, who will share his thoughts on personal productivity, authentic leadership, and building more margin into your life. Michael’s leadership and personal coaching is highly sought after, and it’s a gift to learn how to lead ourselves from someone who practices what he preaches.

This is a free event open to the public.

“With four UA City Council seats up for election and two UA School Board seats open, as well as other issues on the ballot, this proves to be an active and exciting election year.” says Thad Boggs, Leadership UA Board President. “We urge all UA residents to be informed about the candidates running for office and we are pleased to provide this opportunity for our residents to meet the candidates in person and ask important questions.”

Candidates running for office are:

7 to 9 PM – A moderated question and answer forum with the local candidates will occur in the Council Chambers.
