April 13-15, 2014 | Indianapolis, INNew Chairmen training April 16
Wise leaders understand that casting a vision can be like carrying water in a bucket with holes in it: No matter how committed the followers, vision can “leak.” It is necessary to frequently rally the troops and recast the vision to keep the organization focused. In the Auxiliary, that happens at the annual National Chairmen's Meeting. This event provides the leading candidate for national president with the opportunity to share her goals for the year with national leaders and determine objectives for the coming year with what we call our Plan of Action. The National Chairmen's Meeting not only provides professional and personal development for the participants, but a shared camaraderie and energy are developed in knowing we are moving the Auxiliary’s mission forward.
