International Leadership Association

An association I like to recommend to people that are interested in “leadership” and not solely in the context of higher education is The International Leadership Association (ILA). This is the global network for all those who practice, study and teach leadership.  While NCLP is very targeted towards higher education and developing leadership to students, ILA is general and a place of connection for those who are leadership researchers or highly involved in practice.  I’ve enjoyed the student rates for membership my years as a graduate student!  I’ll certainly miss that!  According to the ILA, they promote a deeper understanding of leadership knowledge and practices for the greater good of individuals and communities worldwide.  They strive to strengthen ties between those who study and those who practice leadership; serve as a forum where people can share ideas, research and practices about leadership; foster effective and ethical leadership in individuals, groups, organizations, and governments in the global community; and generate and disseminate interdisciplinary research and develop new knowledge and practices.  You can visit the ILA website at
