Develop Your Leadership Savvy, Change Your Future!
ASPIRE, a compliment to MASTERMIND, is a focused five-month program for aspiring career services leaders (assistant directors, coaches, coordinators, associate directors) to grow their leadership depth, assess how they can lead more effectively in career services today, and explore what it takes to advance in their career.

Thrive inside a community group (C-Group) with 10 colleagues to build robust connections.
Interact with multiple leading experts inside and outside the field.

Experience a personal refresh!

TRANSPORTATION & LODGING
TRANSPORTATION ON YOUR OWN
We recommend renting a car and car pooling with colleagues.
Round Trip Shuttle from DIA to Estes Park (Plan ahead, book ahead). If arriving to DIA after 10:00am on Day 1, then you should carpool with colleagues or rent a car. 10:00am is the last best shuttle to Estes.
Can I get to Estes the night prior or stay an extra night? Yes! The cost is on you, but you can call the Lodge to arrange this after you register and we get you on the roster - we will let you know.
Can I bring a partner or kids to stay with me. Yes. While they won't see you much during ASPIRE and will have to buy their own meal tickets, the YMCA of the Rockies was recently named the #1 Family Resort in the Country by USA Today. There are tons of things for partners and kids to do onsite and in the area. A good excuse to extend your stay.
