Online DEAP Session Scheduled for February 16-18, 2021

The Directors’ Education and Accreditation Program (DEAP) welcomes experienced and newly appointed directors with management or professional experience. Participants are drawn from a mix of backgrounds including public, crown, and not-for-profit corporations.

Work before the session – DEAP delivers critical content in a condensed period of time. When you register for DEAP, you will receive access to the study guides to be reviewed ahead time, ensuring the group begins the program at a similar level of knowledge. Depending on your background, plan on spending up to 30-40 hours with these materials in advance to familiarize yourself with the subject matter.

During the Session – The workshop is three days in duration consisting of presentations, discussions, case studies and a quiz (completed in class) for each module. The session provides a unique opportunity to learn about many different sectors; come prepared to share your experiences and perspectives with the group!

Each day will begin at 9:00 am Eastern with multiple breaks provided throughout the day including 30 minutes for lunch. Assessments will be completed electronically at the end of the session.
