The 2022 APCU Presidents Retreat from March 22 through March 24 at the HALL Arts Hotel in Dallas, Texas. Building upon the relaxed, engaging format of our previous retreat, the 2022 gathering will be even more interactive and focus on surviving and thriving in a post-pandemic world. A substantial portion of the retreat will be dedicated to informal, confidential discussions about key leadership challenges and successes facing our member presidents. We’ll also devote time to the sharing of best practices and innovative ideas that can be replicated across our campuses. 

Please mark your calendar and plan to join fellow APCU presidents at the 2022 APCU Presidents Retreat! And note that the Retreat has been scheduled in conjunction with the CIC NetVUE National Conference beginning on March 24.

Reflections on our most recent retreat:

It was a great opportunity to remove the mantle of leadership from our shoulders and just talk openly about our challenges and successes, not to mention our hopes and fears.

Beck Taylor, Whitworth University

It was the best conference of any sort I have attended since becoming president.

Bob Wilmouth, Rocky Mountain College

I really liked the new format. The frank discussions, just amongst the presidents, were exceedingly interesting and helpful.

Bob Staton, Presbyterian College
