The Truman Library is a remarkable organization with a special program designed to help program participants understand the decision making process in a different fashion.  During the Triennial International Convention, convention participants have the opportunity to accompany the Leadership Development Program participants when they attend the White House Decision Center at the Truman Library.  The Decision Making Simulation will focus on the end of World War II after program participants review some of the documents Truman reviewed when faced with these decisions.  The Decision Making Simulation will be on Saturday, November 4. The ticket is $45 and includes a round trip bus fare to the Truman Library in Independence, Missouri, (about a 40 minute ride from the hotel in Kansas City), a tour of the library archives, a tour of the museum, and lunch.  Participants do not need to be part of the Leadership Development Program to attend, but they do need to register by October 15, 2017 as space is limited.  For more information, please contact Allison G. S. Knox, co-chair of the Leadership Program: [email protected].

Reviews of the White House Decision Center include:

Walmart Leadership Academy Show review

"The group had a great time with valuable learning experiences. One participant who played Truman said making the decision on how to end the war was the most pressure she's ever felt – real or otherwise. She noted that all future decisions would seem minor. That's pretty powerful!"

Harnden Consulting and Associates Show review

"A very rewarding experience."

Kansas City Convention and Visitors Association Show review

"An excellent way to develop quick thinking and critical analysis skills."
"I never let myself have an opinion on the dropping of the atomic bomb to end the war with Japan. This experience gave me a chance to form a strong opinion based on my own analysis of now-declassified primary sources."

Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association Show review

"Great program. EXCELLENT staff!"

FedEx Ground Show review

"Very effective hands-on skill building in a safe and interesting environment."

Registration for the Leadership Program is due no later than Sunday, October 15.  Space is limited.  Join us!
