National Leadership Institute
What is NAMAC's National Leadership Institute?
Begun in 2000 in partnership with the Learning Commons as the Media Arts Leadership Institute (MALI), NAMAC's National Leadership Institute has since grown to be one of our most successful and most far-reaching programs. This five-day intensive intergenerational workshop is designed to encourage and sustain visionary leadership.
NAMAC’s National Leadership Institute offers delegates the opportunity to:
- Increase awareness of their leadership strengths and areas for development
- Learn and practice essential teamwork and collaboration skills
- Determine the steps they will take to grow and sustain their leadership
- Consider the impact of generational and cultural differences in their organizations
- Broaden their network of peer support
The Institute is presented in partnership with The Learning Commons, a nonprofit dedicated to promoting the common good by instigating place-based opportunities for learning, leading and creating.
“The moment you arrive, you step into an environment of openness, trust and exploration that you know will trigger change…I was in constant awe of the talent, fearlessness, and intelligence of the people surrounding me.”

“The NAMAC Leadership Institute has given me great insight into what it means to be a leader, and what makes a successful leader. I appreciated learning about myself, where I can improve as a leader, and what I can do to help my organization. The facilitators presented the material in a fun, intellectual and significant way. I would highly recommend the institute to anyone looking to learn more about effective leadership and broaden their peer network.”
