    Washington Ethical Leadership Summit

    Date: September 13, 2017
    Location: 4401 Village Drive
    Fairfax, Va. 22030

    Organized by Virginia International University, LeaderShape (UK) and University of Chester (UK)

    Ethical Leadership: A Global Catalyst for Change

    Today, rapid increases in globalization and communication technology makes it difficult to hide misdeeds. (Un)ethical leadership affects everyone. But many questions remain: How do we find and develop ethical leaders? How do we develop ethical cultures? How do we get the vast majority of people who have good values to be able to use them without fear? How do we embed this in management and leadership development and education?

    The Washington Ethical Leadership Summit (WELS) is a new call to action, an idea created by Virginia International University, the University of Chester, and LeaderShape Global. An idea that invites you to be involved as part of an emerging community of practice.

    The first Summit in September 2017 is being launched as the first of an annual 1-day event. The theme for the first year is “A Global Catalyst for Change” and reflects the Summit’s aspiration to be a major annual event and ongoing project to promote advances in ethical leadership on a global scale. This includes advancing best practice and conducting research in developing leaders and cultures. In the interests of transparency this is strictly a not-for-profit event with the organizers and their students giving their time free of charge.

    We will attract a diverse mix of people. A majority will be directly leading in their organizational world; they will include board members or senior post holders of organizations. The balance of attendees will comprise experienced leadership advisers, coaches, educators and development practitioners, some of them freelance. Others will be thought leaders and writers, pushing boundaries and aiming to influence emerging practice by fostering new thinking in ethical leadership.

    Service Contract Act Training

    Date: November 8-9, 2017
    Time: 7:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
    Location: NRECA Conference Center
    4301 Wilson Blvd.
    Arlington, Va. 22203

    This course has been approved for 13 CLE or HRCI credits

    The Service Contract Act (SCA) and the regulations implementing SCA are some of the most challenging requirements for contractors and for contracting agencies involved in federal contracts for services. If you are competing for the award of a service contract, or performing a service contract and administering your responsibilities under SCA, this two-day course is critical to understanding SCA and ensuring fair competition and full compliance throughout performance of the awarded contract.

    PSC’s updated and enhanced “2017 Service Contract Act Training” teaches the fundamental requirements of SCA as it affects preparation of proposals, wage determinations, classifications and conformances for missing classifications, staffing, pricing, out-year price adjustments, response to payroll audits and worker inquiries, administering SCA provisions as they apply to collective bargaining agreements, and numerous other issues on service contracting.

    The course is designed to provide important information for all personnel in your company whose work may involve covered service workers. All of these persons must have relevant knowledge, work together, and communicate with each other in order to be successfully competitive, maintain compliance following award, and avoid unexpected payroll and benefit liabilities.
