LEAD is an annual one-day, drive-in conference sponsored by the North Carolina College Personnel Association (NCCPA) that brings together leaders from campuses across the state of North Carolina. This conference is specifically geared toward current and rising student leaders and is hosted at a different institution each year. Interested campuses should complete the application and submit it to the Leadership Consortium Chair for review. The conference will allow students to network, learn how other leadership teams and programs function and to get ideas to bring back to campus. An integrated aspect of the LEAD program and leadership generally is to give back to others through a community service project designated by the host committee. More about the conference..

Leadership Theory to Review
The Leadership Consortium has identified these two leadership theories to begin our professional development with. By clicking on the links below, you will find an outline of each of the theories. Please be aware that these outlines are just the beginning of what you may learn about each theory. For more resources, please feel free to contact the Leadership Consortium Chair. If there is a new theory you would like to add to this website, please contact the Leadership Consortium Chair.
