Leadership Summits

The American Inns of Court is committed to supporting local Inn leaders in Inn management and performance. Leadership Summits are designed for current and upcoming Inn leaders to connect, problem-solve, and learn about Inn management best practices to optimize their Inn’s performance. Leadership Summits will provide Inn leaders with resources and tools to continually improve Inn management.

Why Attend a Leadership Summit?

What is a Leadership Summit?

In a traditional sense, a summit is a meeting or conference. However, the word summit can also mean the highest peak of a hill or mountain. We like to think of a Leadership Summit as both: it is a meeting of current and incoming American Inns of Court leaders that equips them with the tools needed to ascend to excellence.

The Leadership Summits have grown in the same manner—each summit builds upon the last one, providing more to Inn leaders. Leadership Summits originally started off as a training ground for best practices to help Inn leaders develop their skills. While we still discuss best practices, Leadership Summits have evolved into a time of networking, sharing, problem-solving and finding inspiration from fellow leaders. It has grown to be a unique day of learning and connection.

Why is it Important?

While you as an Inn leader are very involved in your local community, it is important to be aware of and connected to the entire American Inns of Court movement. The summits give you the opportunity to focus on how your Inn can connect with the mission of the organization in new and inspiring ways.

Inspire and Engage with Other Inn Leaders

Leadership Summits are also an opportunity to reconnect with “why” we are Inn leaders. You are making an impact every day. No matter the task, you are creating the space for professionalism and civility to occur.  Leadership Summits are an opportunity to reconnect to the mission of the American Inns of Court, examine your Inn’s role within the mission, and inspire other Inns to reach the next level of excellence.
