Q. Who is the intended audience for this conference?
A. Attendees will include academics, practitioners and policymakers.To be more specific, the term "academics" refers to those who teach/conduct research into areas involving generational issues, service learning, sociology and management. These academics will come from civilian universities and military institutions of higher learning. "Practitioners" refers to those in both the public and private sectors who have served or are currently serving in a leadership position. Our "policymakers" are those in the upper echelons of government or corporate institutions who engage in strategy development. They set the direction for others to follow and allocate resources. They are also interested in developing their organizations and leaders. They impact the culture and the values of those that work for and with them. By bringing this diverse group of individuals together, we hope to facilitate the sharing of information and ideas. We will all learn from each other and leave with connections and information to help us improve our ability to learn and lead.
