This virtual event is a six-week forum exclusively available to leaders across the community corrections field — at all levels of government. If space permits, registration will be extended to judges, non-profit CEOs, and corporate members of APPA.
VIEW MESSAGE FROM APPA'S PRESIDENT
Aaron will kick-off our training by tailoring his remarks to the four strategic discussion points. As a transformative leader, he will speak to the audience about why a business leader and a government leader have the same goals - just different products and/or services.
The opening will also feature a panel of key stakeholders, made up of individuals with a diverse understanding of the justice system, who will respond and react to the keynote speaker’s (TBA) remarks. They will also share their experiences translating a “business model” to public service and will discuss their perspectives of the role of community corrections leaders.

Bookended by the dynamic and purpose driven opening and closing sessions, leaders will also collaborate in facilitator-led groups that will challenge their thinking and approach. They will be coached on the enormous responsibilities they must perform as a dedicated public servant who is committed to community corrections transformation. Leaders will better understand the need to conduct themselves like a business leader - setting consequential goals to strengthen successes.
Guided by skilled facilitators, each cohort (small groups of roughly 20) will start with pre-recorded speaker interviews from other leaders in the field which will spark discussion and thinking around four topics.
The topics provide a sound overview from which participants will be able to use across multiple projects to achieve the goals of the summit — drive purpose.

Leaders will return to their respective offices and begin to contemplate how to apply the concepts; then return for another session on the topic to share how they used or plan to use what they heard within their work environments.
The closing speaker will tailor his remarks to the four strategic discussions topics and will summarize the executive summit presentations. Most of his message will be around the importance of purpose-driven, transformational leadership.
