The leaders and organizers of the Industrial Areas Foundation build organizations whose primary purpose is power – the ability to act – and whose chief produce is equitable social change. The IAF is non-ideological and strictly non-partisan, but proudly, publicly and persistently political. Through local affiliates, the IAF builds a political base among voluntary institutions that include religious congregations, labor locals, education locals, civic organizations and others. Our leaders use that base to compete at times, to confront at times and to cooperate at times with decision-makers in the government and market sectors.
For over 40 years the IAF has been holding leadership training sessions for members of broad-based organizations across the US and more recently in Canada, Great Britain, Germany, Australia and New Zealand. These sessions provide a thorough introduction to the organizing practices and principles developed by Industrial Areas Foundation member organizations in its 75-year history.
These International and Regional Institutes are intended for two groups of people:
1) Leaders or active members of a local IAF affiliate who have attended local Leadership Institutes and are interested in developing their leadership skills;
2) Leaders of institutions who are actively exploring membership in an IAF affiliate.
If you are interested in attending the Industrial Areas Foundation’s Winter Regional Training please contact MVA.
Cost: $900 (Can), $695 (US) per person (includes all meals and double occupancy hotel room); $1,000 (Can) $765.00 (US) for single-occupancy. Participants cover their own travel costs.
