Conference Attendee Testimonials
"I was impressed by the collaborative atmosphere of the presentations and discussions. Both presenters and attendees seemed to hold the goal of sharing information and perspectives rather than proving expertise or superiority. The diversity of the sessions ensured that attendees could find something pertaining to their interest in each time session. "
- Tierney Stark
"This conference gave insight into new ways of going about leadership; it also gave students the opportunity to express their experiences and concerns with leadership. It also, showed where leadership was headed in the future compared to where it first started."

"I really enjoyed the entire conference. I love the fact that there is a significant interdisciplinary approach to the emerging scholarly field and that was very well represented at the conference in Denver."

"As always, the opportunity for dialogue, connections and reflection; to be inspired by exciting new/provocative ideas; and to consider new ways to reach students, exercise my own potential and to contribute in meaningful ways to the profession. ILA continues to provide one of the best conference experiences for these reasons."
- Laurie Schnarr

"The energy, the fact that it covers so many dimensions that are meaningful to me (as a scholar, educator, director, woman, interested in youth leadership, etc.), about as up to date on thinking about leadership as you can get (of course)."
- Valerie Sessa

"Routledge/Psychology Press has been exhibiting at this conference for the past 10 years. We are delighted with the team at ILA that is so helpful. Truly, this is one of the best conferences I, as book editor, attend each year. The quality of the sessions, author contacts one can make, and lovely added touch of an author book signing sponsored by ILA, is unique to this conference. I hope to return again each year."
