LEC Early Registration Deadline Approaching!

The early registration deadline for SIOP’s 6th Annual Leading Edge Consortium, “Developing and Enhancing High-Performance Teams” is only a day away! Save money and take a step to enhance your career by reserving your seat early!

Register for the LEC online here.

This year's LEC will take place October 22-23, 2010 at the Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay, Tampa, Florida.

This consortium will bring together thought leaders from academia and practice to focus on the robust topic of teams and team leadership. Attendees will hear from speakers covering a wide range of issues, such as team structure, team effectiveness, team leadership, virtual teams, and team engagement. We will engage the speakers and the participants alike in discussions about the practice and science of teams and will apply the discussion to public, private, and military settings. For more information about the program, including a complete speaker list and presentation abstracts, visit the Leading Edge Consortium page.

This year’s LEC will also feature numerous opportunities for networking and discussion, including the successful Practitioner Speed-Mentoring Event, which will take place 6-7 p.m., October 21, 2010, directly before the LEC reception. At the event, attendees will participate in roundtable discussions with seasoned professionals on predetermined topics of interest. This event is a terrific opportunity for practitioners to seek guidance, knowledge, and wisdom from mentors who have “been there and done that.”

For more information, including hotel reservations, the agenda and list of speakers, as well as information on how to obtain CE credits, visit the LEC page here.
