We encourage you to bring a guest to the reception who may be a candidate for the 2001-02 program.

We are pleased that Betty will attend the 2001 Alumni Reception and invite you to join the Michigan EPFP alumni, and friends of the program in celebrating her appointment to this new leadership role. A brief program is planned. Light hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar will be available.
EPFP Year End Wrap-up
June 4, 2001
Throughout the past year the Fellows have explored various aspects of the policy development process and gained insights about themselves in a leadership context. This session will provide an opportunity to reflect on these insights and the "lessons learned." This is the final seminar for the 2000-01 EPFP class and we will facilitate a year end wrap-up discussion and a formal program evaluation. The IEL Leadership Certificate will be awarded at the conclusion of the program.
Fellows and Coordinators
Change and Systemic Leadership
May 14, 2001
The presentation will focus on the use of systemic thinking when initiating change. Fellows will learn the essential elements of each of the Core Disciplines espoused by Peter Senge and how they can implement these elements as an “agent of change.” The discussion will start with a presentation from Charles Roe who is a Management Consultant and the President of the Midwest Society for Organizational Learning based in Ann Arbor, MI. Mr. Roe will provide an overview of Systems Thinking and the Core Disciplines. Various group activities using a mixture of modalities will be employed to provide fellows with a multi-media experience when thinking about systemic leadership. The presentation will follow a theme and provide the information in a fun, easy to learn format. At the end of the presentation, Fellows will gain more knowledge about systems thinking and will possess tools that will assist them in considering the role of a leader in a system/organization.
