Duke Mansion

SEMC Leadership Institute tuition will be $1,500 for SEMC and AAAM members and $1,600 for non-members. Tuition will include Institute resources, breakfast and lunch daily as well as one dinner. There will be a follow-up workshop for Institute cohorts on Sunday, October 18, 2020 in Louisville. Conference registration for SEMC 2020 Annual Meeting in Louisville will be complimentary for 2020 Institute cohorts.

The SEMC Leadership Institute: Leading for Today’s Challenges will equip a new generation of museum leaders with outward-looking skills and strategies that increase their effectiveness as leaders and ability to create a productive and inclusive environment within the museum and among the museum’s board.

I believe a great deal in this program and hope to see several of you in North Carolina!
