September 28 & 29, 2015 Leadership Challenge: The Leadership Development Academy members participated in the Leadership Challenge at the inspirational SparkSpace Meeting Center. The Leadership Challenge curriculum was focused on the Leadership Practices Inventory or LPI which explores the 5 Practices of Exemplary Leadership:

Encourage The HeartOhio ACEP at Council 2015

October 23 - 25, 2015 ACEP Council: The LDA Class took Boston by storm, as they joined ACEP members from all over the country to gather at the ACEP Council meeting. The LDA Class members actively served as Alternate Councillors representing Ohio ACEP's members. Each year, Council meets for two days in conjunction with the College’s Annual Meeting - "ACEP15" to deliberate and vote on Board of Directors candidates, potential changes to ACEP Bylaws and proposed Resolutions that—if adopted—will guide ACEP initiatives, allocate funds and set policies in the coming years.

December 9, 2015 Strategic Planning: The LDA Class joined the Ohio ACEP Board of Directors in planning Ohio ACEP's future initiatives in Advocacy, Education, and Leadership.

April 18, 2016 A Look at Leadership: The LDA Class will gathered to learn from some of the Chapters most influential leaders - from the past and present!

The LDA GraduatesApril 19, 2016 Ohio Emergency Medicine Leadership Forum:
The LDA Class will joined respected EM physicians, legislators, senators, and aides at the EM Forum. Emergency Medicine Leadership Forum blends the best in medical education, with physician advocacy, leadership topics, and networking with state and national physician leaders and Ohio’s elected leaders. Event presentations and panels focused on leadership topics which impact emergency physicians and patient care. These proud LDA graduates received their diplomas at the EM Forum.

May 15 - 18, 2016 Leadership and Advocacy Conference: 
Emergency physicians from all over the country, including our Leadership Class from Ohio, will converge on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, for the National ACEP annual Leadership and Advocacy Conference. The Conference features meetings with legislators, media training and opportunities to learn how to effectively advocate for emergency medicine. The Leadership and Advocacy Conference is the Capstone experience of the Leadership Development Academy because the physician who understands how to engage with public officials, the press and the public is emergency medicine’s best possible advocate.
