Call for Presentations


Submission Deadline

March 31, 2024 11:59PM ET


The International Leadership Association is the professional home of a global community of leaders and leadership researchers, educators, and development specialists from a wide array of sectors and disciplines who believe that leadership is the key to a just and thriving future for all people. For more than 25 years, the ILA has advanced the study and practice of leadership by creating opportunities like our Global Conference for people to connect and engage with one another to explore innovative ideas, create new resources, and multiply our collective impact.

We invite you to submit a proposal for this year’s Global Conference, “Architects of Change: Leaders, Followers, and Communities,” which will take place 7-10 November in Chicago, located on lands that are the traditional homelands of the Anishinaabe, or the Council of the Three Fires: the Ojibwe, Odawa, and Potawatomi Nations.
