University hosts public safety leadership summit in June
Building upon organizational strengths, managing change, effective communication and how to handle workplace conflict will be among the topics explored at the 2nd annual Next Generation Leadership Summit for Police Professionals being held June 3 through 7 at Fitchburg State University.
The summit, presented by Fitchburg State in collaboration with the Fitchburg and Harvard police departments, will introduce police professionals to new skills and tools that will lead to new perspectives on leadership in their profession.
“ This project is the fruit of a great partnership between Fitchburg State and public safety professionals from beyond our campus. This summit fills an important need for the communities we serve.”–President Antonucci
In addition to the seminars, the summit will give participants an introduction to the assessment center process used in many departments to select candidates for promotion. Registration also includes a trip to Fenway Park to watch the Red Sox.
The next generation leadership summit was launched in 2011, and this year’s edition builds on that strong foundation. Its planning committee includes the Fitchburg and Harvard police chiefs, Fitchburg State faculty members and staff, as well as students.
“This project is the fruit of a great partnership between Fitchburg State and public safety professionals from beyond our campus,” said Fitchburg State President Robert V. Antonucci, who will welcome the attendees with remarks the first night of the summit. “This summit fills an important need for the communities we serve.”
Participants, who will live on campus during the week-long summit, will take part in six breakout sessions, covering topics selected by public safety professionals and designed to help build leadership competencies.
Registration is $695 for attendees who wish to stay on campus during the program or $495 for commuters. Registrations received by April 15 will qualify for a $15 discount. The final deadline for registration is May 15.
