In addition to topical and plenary sessions, the 2011 Leadership Institute will feature a full morning of peer group gatherings for state arts agency council members, executive directors and deputy directors.

Held on Friday, October 21, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m., these meetings offer you the opportunity to network and to trade ideas and perspectives with people from around the nation who share similar responsibilities.

Peer groups are volunteer-organized and led by members. Each group develops its own unique agenda. If you have agenda questions or suggestions—or would like to lend a hand!—please contact your group coordinators:
