Do you want to grow as a leader in your professional and personal life? Then we want you to apply for Leadership ATPE. This dynamic one-year program was designed to provide emerging leaders the tools they need to best serve their schools and communities, pursue leadership roles within ATPE, and advance their careers.

Leadership ATPE takes place every two years, and the next training academy will begin in August. Applications will be accepted through May 31, and applicants who are selected will be notified of acceptance the week of June 19.

Participants will attend two expense-paid leadership retreats and network with their colleagues throughout the year. Training sessions will focus on public speaking and presentation skills, strategic thinking practices, building connections, enhancing interpersonal communication, advocacy, and more.

The leadership retreats will take place at the Lone Star Court in Austin Oct. 13–15, 2023, and April 5–7, 2024.

Check out this ATPE News article for a glimpse into how Leadership ATPE has shaped the association’s leaders. The program has empowered alumni to pursue local and region leadership roles within ATPE, advocate for public education before lawmakers, and even participate in SXSW EDU panels.

Here are a few more things to know about the program:

  • The application process involves answering a series of questions and submitting a resume and headshot. There is also a $20 application fee.
  • Applicants must have been an ATPE member for at least two years, including the current 2022-23 membership year.
