Consortium leaders, staff members, and member institution representatives often find themselves in-between and in the middle - of multiple and varied plans, priorities, collaboratives, disagreements, and even stakeholders. We have organized our next Association for Collaborative Leadership webinar to focus on how individuals can effectively manage individual and consortial change and influence while serving both as a leader and follower. We hope you will join us for our January webinar titled "Leading From The Middle" on Wednesday, January 27, 2021 at 12 Noon Eastern.
