The IACAC Middle Management Institute will take place this year at Lake Forest College in Lake Forest, Illinois, June 6-7, 2013. Our program, modeled after the NACAC Admission Middle Management Institute, will once again aim to educate admission professionals for the jobs they have now and those they wish to have in the future.
Middle managers in admissions wear many hats: they plan and coordinate on-campus programming, they supervise newer staff members, they oversee admission decisions and administer budgets, often while managing an admission territory of their own. They are invaluable to our offices, yet we cannot always give them the time and the training they need to further develop their skills.
Over a day and a half, participants will delve into topics like leadership, charting a career path, managing up, and the role of enrollment management. Sessions will be led by admission professionals from both institutions in Illinois and from around the nation who will not only educate, but will continue to serve as mentors for the participants long after the workshop has ended.
“Now in our third year we are really starting to see the impact that MMI has made on the attendees” said Nate Bargar, MMI co-chair. “We have continued to improve the program based on the feedback of the previous year’s participants. This year’s MMI will be a great mix of what has worked for us during the previous two MMIs as well as some new pieces to help enhance the participant’s experience.”
The cost for this program is $150, with continental breakfast and lunch both days, and Thursday dinner included. For participants who wish to stay overnight, there are a couple of options that are available using the Lake Forest College rate.
Registration for the program will begin soon and will continue through May 25. Visit the Middle Management Institute website for more information.
