DeBlasi, Robert V.
Guidelines of a four-phase model for conducting leadership conferences are outlined. Phase I focuses on initial conference planning, including (1) identifying need and purpose for the conference; (2) selecting a conference chairperson; (3) forming the conference planning committee, listing suggested committees and their responsibilities (program, brochure and application, participant selection, registration, publicity, finance, vendors, facilities, and evaluation committees); and (4) convening the conference planning meeting, including reviewing the purpose of the conference, identifying clientele, selecting conference dates and facility (advantages and disadvantages of hotels/motels; convention/conference centers; resorts, retreats, lodges, and parks; schools, colleges, and community centers), developing conference objectives, conducting a needs assessment, formulating a conference program, setting committee assignments, establishing a time line, and wrapping up the session. Phase II focuses on interim conference planning, providing guidelines related to the 9 previously named committees. Activities during the conference itself are discussed in Phase III and Phase IV and post-conference activities in Phase IV. A list of additional resources, sample planning checklist, session evaluation form, and conference evaluation form are provided. (SK)
