Who should attend?

We designed this invitation-only event specifically for Senior Leaders in Public Safety Organizations. We will consider leaders from any size organization; however, those selected generally have between 75 and 1000 employees (sworn and professional staff).

How many people can attend this event?

Because of the highly collaborative nature of this event, we limit attendance to only 50 participants.

How do I request an invitation?

If you’d like to apply to attend this event, please let us know your interest by visiting our series application page or contacting Sarabeth Truebenbach at struebenbach@commandpresence.net.

How is the Event funded?

As a way of giving back to communities across the U.S., our friends at T-Mobile for Government have generously provided us with funds that help us drastically reduce the cost of attendance from $1150 to only $450 per person (a savings of $700 per person).
Thanks, T-Mobile For Government!

Are meals provided?

We will provide refreshments throughout the day. We will also offer food and beverages at networking events.

What should I bring to the event?

Bring an open (solution-oriented) mindset and be prepared to discuss the biggest leadership challenges facing the public safety profession. We will provide you with a custom pen, a note-taking guide, and a free copy of “Compelling Force Leadership.” If you prefer to take notes in an alternate format, please bring those resources with you to class.
