2020 AKA Leadership Workshop & Pre-Workshop Sessions


The American Kinesiology Association will hold its 13th annual leadership workshop on January 23-25, 2020 in Tampa, FL. The workshop brings together over 100 kinesiology leaders, administrators, and faculty who are committed to advancing our discipline as a unified field of study. The workshop provides a unique opportunity to network with others engaged in university administration and with those who are interested in increasing their leadership knowledge and skills for effective administration of kinesiology departments. Two pre-workshop sessions will be offered prior to the AKA Leadership Workshop. Registration and hotel information are provided below.

Workshop Theme: To Be Announced Soon!

The Leadership Workshop begins at 1:30 PM on Friday, January 25, and concludes with the AKA Banquet and Awards Recognition Ceremony on Saturday evening, January 25.  The workshop is highly interactive with small group discussions on specific topics related to the workshop theme and opportunities for networking with other kinesiology leaders, including university presidents, deans, chairs and directors, and faculty. 

In addition to the invited presentations, workshop participants will be invited to submit proposals for roundtable discussions, and/or theme-focused workshop sessions. 

Pre-Workshop Sessions

The two pre-workshop sessions will be held concurrently from 2 to 5:30 PM on Thursday, January 23th and continuing from 8:30 AM to noon on Friday, January 24. These sessions provide for in-depth presentations and discussions on specific issues of importance to kinesiology administrators and faculty.

Registration for either pre-workshop is $150 per individual from AKA member departments. AKA membership is required to register.
