ACE monthly programs provide members and guests the opportunity to establish relationships through networking and to build working relationships with other professionals. Monthly program topics are selected as a means of strengthening the skills of members and increasing their awareness and knowledge of markets, business and social trends and professional disciplines that will enhance their particular fields. Speakers are sought that are both accomplished and offer a fresh perspective on a subject.

Workshops and seminars on business building skills and personal development are offered to members and to the business community. ACE also offers programs for the broader business community that brings together ACE professionals and experts from around the country.

Please review our Event Registration & Cancellation Policy.

    Roundtable:

    Performing the Balancing Acts of Leadership

    Leaders at all levels of an organization’s hierarchy face situations, problems, challenges and opportunities that do not conform to a “one size fits all” leadership style. This session introduces a conceptual framework, “the balancing acts”, that helps leaders fine tune their leadership approach and strategy to the situation at hand.

    The Facilitator is:

    Jeanne A.K. Hey is Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of New England in Biddeford, ME. Previously, she served as the Director of International Studies and Professor of Political Science at Miami University, in Oxford, Ohio. A Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Bucknell University, she earned a PhD in political science from The Ohio State University. She has conducted research and taught university courses in Latin America, the Caribbean, Asia and Europe. She has served the University of New England during a time of great expansion in institutional mission and size.

    Jeanne is an active member of the Council on Colleges of Arts and Sciences, the Higher Education Research Service (HERS), and Academic Impressions. She leads professional development seminars, workshops and one-on-one mentoring sessions in the areas of leadership development, the unique challenges of academic leadership, working with faculty, strategic planning and much more. She lives in Saco, ME, with her husband and two sons.
