Introducing the AASHTO Leadership Development Series
Discover. Engage. Connect. Refresh. Lead.
AASHTO has a long and rich history of providing leadership and management training to its members. While honoring this successful legacy, it is prudent to reflect, refresh, and adapt to a changing world.
We’ve taken our popular management and leadership training programs and placed them under one umbrella: the AASHTO Leadership Development Series. The series is meant to build sequentially as building blocks for lifelong learning, but each institute can also stand on its own.
When you see the AASHTO Leadership Development Series logo, you will know that the course meets AASHTO’s standards for quality, professionalism, and content-relevant training for those working in the field of transportation, regardless of where they are in their career.
Participants at all three Institutes will engage in active learning; connect with colleagues from across the country; discover more about themselves; and leave rejuvenated and ready to lead. To learn more about the series, visit: https://cvent.me/NxNXBy.
All three Institutes are built on four pillars that form the foundation for the curriculum:
AASHTO Management Institute (AMI)
The AASHTO Management Institute takes place on average five times a year at various locations around the United States. This training offers content geared to providing supervisors, managers, and leaders with the crucial competencies and resources needed to simplify and perform their critically important roles. To Register and Learn More, visit: https://cvent.me/AweNMB.
Throughout the four-day training, participants are introduced to the tools, techniques, and best practices required to manage people and projects effectively. For more experienced managers, the training updates and reﬁnes existing skills, challenges current thinking, introduces new concepts, and explores changing employee and customer relationships. The training also allows participants to share experiences – difficulties, and successes that impact transportation managers – as they learn from one another in the interactive exercises throughout the week.
Registration is now open for AMI 2023. Nominations should be received no later than 30 days prior to the start date of each event. Late nominations will be considered only if space is still available.
