Have you started working on your proposal yet to present at ILA's 21st annual global conference? There's still time to share your work with an international community of people working at the crossroads of leadership research, education, and practice! All leadership topics are welcome.

The International Leadership Association calls for contributors to submit courageous proposals to its 21st Annual Global Conference to be held in Ottawa, Canada, 24-27 October 2019. The ILA invites you to propose panels, presentations, poster sessions, roundtables, symposia, and workshops, that are interdisciplinary, that are multi-sector, that transcend national and cultural barriers, that explore new theories and innovative practices, and that consider knowledge and traditions from other disciplines and groups.

Join them for this important dialogue. Submit your presentation proposals by 1 February 2019 to further their understanding and support of Leadership: Courage Required

New This Year! Choose from 40 different submission streams! 

This year's theme is Leadership: Courage Required. It takes courage to be a leader and a follower. It takes courage to be innovative, to assess the effectiveness of one’s work and research, and to discuss what went right and what went wrong. It takes courage to be a mentor, a teacher, and a student. No matter what your pathway is, no matter what your work, courage comes into play.

Special Opportunities for Students

ILA's conferences offer many professional development opportunities for students including the opportunity to present one's research and work. 

Students should consider submitting a proposal by 1 February to the Emerging Scholars Research Consortium - an invitation only poster session that takes place during the conference in which emerging scholars are paired with seasoned scholars for mentoring and project feedback. To apply, simply choose ESRC as your proposal type when submitting. 

While students who are further along in their research may decide to submit a presentation, we also encourage students to consider submitting a poster or interactive roundtable. Posters and roundtables are excellent opportunities for more intensive feedback and can be used to share research that is in its initial phases. Select poster or roundtable as your proposal type when submitting. 

Additional student opportunities at the conference such as ILA's full day doctoral consortium pre-conference, the annual student case competition, and the Jablin Dissertation and Clark Paper awards will be available later this year!
