  • A Message from the Director of Educational Development Amma Marfo

    Hello, and greetings from Boston!

    Given your commitment to success and the betterment of mankind, you are in a unique position to help grow and sustain a national initiative with the straightforward goal of graduating students with the nec-essary leadership understandings and aptitudes to be contributing members of society. Casting a large net across the country, Lead365 is reaching out to all colleges and universities, foundations and organizations invested in moving beyond basic leadership skill development opportunities by creating a premier confer-ence called the Lead365 National Conference. I am pleased to provide information on how you can be part of our efforts.

    A quick visit to our website ( or look at our marketing videos on YouTube (Lead365 National Conference Promo Video 2015) provides details about our mission and esteemed Board of Di-rectors. Within this publication are suggestions on how you can help advance our agenda within American higher education collegiate leadership development.

    In addition to the more traditional sponsorship options, I want to encourage your thoughts and ideas on how you can make a difference. For example, you could name a scholarship directly after your organization which is jointly advertised and includes a link directly from the Lead365 website to your site to complete the application.

    Lead365 proudly sponsors one national conference annually differentiated from other events in a variety of ways, least of which is the involvement of top professional speakers and practitioners who remain all three days. We are also committed to building an online virtual warehouse of resources, cutting edge assess-ments and coaching capsules. You can help make all of this happen! Here are the four sponsorship levels:

    Explore ($500) Engage ($2000) Evolve ($5000) Founding Partner ($20,000 ++)

    Hosted once a year in Orlando, the Lead365 National Conference is unlike any other national conference cur-rently available. Over the course of three days, collegiate leaders of diverse involvements (or none at all) along with professionals and graduate students working with student leaders, teaching leadership education, advising student groups, overseeing relevant functional areas and so on, follow a curriculum developed under the guid-ance of Dr. Corey Seemiller, author of The Student Leadership Competencies Guidebook (published by Jossey-Bass).
