SUMMER LEADERSHIP FORUM                                  


Each summer the Association hosts a one-day Leadership Forum consisting of a half-day guest speaker presentation on a timely topic, followed by a lunch and half-day leadership and planning workshop. 

Historically, this event has been held at no-cost to FWIT members and open to nonmembers for a nominal cost. 


Save the date for the 2020 Summer Leadership Forum on June 13, 2020 and watch for more details on the event which will be held in Dallas.


2019:  Houston was the venue for the June 22, 2019 Summer Leadership Forum. Thirty attendees heard a riveting presentation from the Houston Police Department’s Senior Community Liaison, Stephen Daniel, on what to do when the unthinkable happens. He explained how to react during an active shooter crisis and the importance of having a “survival mindset” in the event of a mass shooting. A second guest speaker, Mark Elliott, author of Sitting Duck – Why YOUR Business is a Cybercriminal’s Ideal Target, also spoke on how to keep our data safe. Mr. Elliott discussed the common cyber-criminal attacks and provided practical tips applicable to all attendees. Additional details can be found in the News tab in the July 2019 issue of FWIT News.


2018:  Forty engaged, committed FWIT members met in Dallas on June 9, 2018 for our Summer Leadership Forum, led by Sherri Elliott-Yeary, known as the Generation Guru.  Sherri presented a half-day workshop on Generational Leadership.  Additional details can be found in the News tab in the June 2018 issue of FWIT News.   Sherri's presentation can be found on our Members Only page.
