Join Us

Enrich your council by attending the Council Leadership Summit in Indianapolis for a day and a half of engaging, learning and networking. Council leaders will participate in sessions and discussions around council diversity, membership growth and council administration. This is your opportunity to gather the tools and resources that will help you lead your council to success while collaborating with others doing similar work around the country. 


The Council Leadership Summit will take place June 3-5, 2019 in downtown Indianapolis, IN.

Council Leadership Summit Agenda


CGP has supported my council by introducing us to an invaluable network of council leadership peers who readily shared ideas for success stories and suggestions for best practices. I left the 2016 Council Summit with so many ideas for adding value to our membership.
