One of Sue’s Grad School Mentors, JoAnn Schindler called her one day to say 'Sue, I think you should attend this event. It's a combination of leadership practice, contemplation and creativity.' Sue can't thank her enough for the entry into the ALIA world. She attended her first ALIA conference and met many of her tribe there.
She joined the West Coast branch of ALIA in 2015 and hung with that group of talented designers until the Spring of 2017. She managed to support two conferences as part of the design and hosting team while upping her skills by soaking in the fantastic modules by creative and skilled practitioners.
Just to wet your whistle, here is one of the quick descriptions for an ALIA Intensive: STRENGTHEN YOUR CAPACITY TO LEAD FEARLESSLY IN CHALLENGING SITUATIONS. PARTICIPATE IN A POWERFUL LEARNING COMMUNITY AND EXPERIENCE “DEEP DIVE” MODULES WITH WORLD-CLASS FACULTY.
Yep, good peeps to hang with.
