The CPE program brings together professionals from communications centers across the U.S. and Canada. When you sign up, you join a fellowship of learning where you will explore the issues that are most important to you. Not only will you work with a great class of students, you will work closely with faculty and instructors with university-level experience, specializing in leadership education.

This is a hands-on program designed to help you develop the knowledge, skills and confidence to provide leadership in a wide range of situations: in your agency, your town or state or within your APCO chapter. This unique opportunity to set yourself apart from your peers and have fun in the process will be unlike anything you've ever imagined. Learn more.
