To our membership and friends

It is with happiness and great expectations that we invite you to join us at the 53rd  Annual EARCOS Leadership Conference.  This very special event will be held in Bangkok from October 25 through October 28 at the Shangri-la Hotel.

The program has emerged as one of the most dynamic conferences we have ever offered.  With a dozen powerful preconference sessions, four inspirational keynotes, job-alike sessions, and nearly 200 workshops by thought leaders on topics that matter most to everyone in leadership roles, we know that you will want to join with your colleagues from around the region—and the globe—in Bangkok this October.  Never before has there been a more critical moment for leaders to join together, share with one another and learn together.
