Academy Fall Meeting 2021

November 03, 2021 @ 08:30:00 am - November 09, 2021 @ 05:00:00 pm
Eastern Time (ET)

Addressing Grand Challenges Through The Intergovernmental System

The theme for this year's Fall Meeting is “Addressing Grand Challenges through the Intergovernmental System,” and we are very excited about the content and structure of the five-day event. This year's Fall Meeting will be a novel approach as a hybrid model with remote and in-person options presented by five host sites throughout the country (Arizona, Nebraska, California, Indiana, and Washington, D.C.) When registering, you may choose the all-virtual option or you may opt to attend a regional gathering in person with the remaining content delivered virtually.

If you are planning to attend in person, for the best experience we recommend one of the on-site live options at one of our host sites. View the Schedule-At-A-Glance below to learn more about our on-site hosts and day themes.

Fellows are enthusiastic for more engagement and we are looking forward to fruitful engagement with new and current Fellows, hearing from phenomenal speakers, participating in powerful discussions, and honoring our Awardees! In addition to uniquely themed days, the Academy will be inducting the new Fellows of the Class of 2021.
