Celebrating the 50th anniversary of servant leadership, the 2020 International Servant-Leader Summit will be held from June 10-12 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. This conference will feature an international array of speakers and sessions organized into nine tracks, including an academic track on the “Research Evidence on Servant Leadership” featuring new research perspectives and opportunities, as well as a “Universities & Schools” track focusing on teaching and implementing servant leadership in higher education. Confirmed speakers include such noted researchers as Shann Ferch, Chad Hartnell, Emily Hunter, Robert Liden, Jeremy Meuser, Mitch Neubert, and many more. Leaders in servant leadership practice, including Don Frick, James Hunter, and Clifton Taulbert, will also give presentations.
There are several new features of interest to leadership researchers at this year’s conference, including:
· A roundtable session connecting servant leadership researchers with organizational managers interested in partnering on data collection and research projects
· A session with information on the Greenleaf Scholars Program, a funding opportunity for doctoral students and junior faculty members interested in servant leadership research
· A roundtable with the Board of Directors of the Greenleaf Center for Servant Leadership, and a chance to help guide the Center’s path in working with scholars and academics
· A session on how to best measure and assess servant leadership in our research
· And several presentations of the latest servant leadership research by top and up-and-coming scholars

We cannot share the registration code for this discount in a public posting, but I can share it with any interested potential attendees if they email me (James Lemoine) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
