If you have any interest in leadership, organizational life, or understanding how you relate to and take up authority in groups, I encourage you to consider attending a Group Relations Conference. Many consider the flagship opportunity in the United States to be the Annual Residential Conference of the A. K. Rice Institute for the Study of Social Systems (AKRI). This week-long,  experiential learning event has been held annually in the U.S. for more than half a century, and is directly based on the model and tradition established by persons such as A. K. Rice at the Tavistock Institute in London, England.

Scholarship funds are still available for the remaining seats at the A. K. Rice Institute’s 55th Annual Residential Group Relations Conference being held this year at Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana. The title of the 2019 conference is The Politics of Our Lives: Managing Complex Boundaries at Work, Home, and in Our Communities. As both Vice President of the A. K. Rice Institute and a Consultant Candidate in the A. K. Rice Institute’s Training and Certification program, I am honored to be working as a member of this year’s amazing consulting staff in New Orleans.
