Chautauqua Institute

         After the fun week traveling East to West in central New York, we will go to the Chautauqua Institute which is based on the arts, education, religion, and recreation.
    The Ethics of Leadership is the topic for our week at Chautauqua this year. Rev. James Forbes, Senior Minister Emeritus of Riverside Church in Manhattan, New York will be the minister each morning.Riverside is an interdenominational church of American Baptist and United Church of Christ.
     This is the write-up about the rest of the institute speakers:  

What constitutes leadership? When one is designated a “leader,” what are the particular obligations of leadership? How are these responsibilities expressed in ethical terms? Does ethical leadership imply social responsibility? Is leadership different age to age? In our annual Applied Ethics exploration, we will examine leadership from the points of view of business and politics, education and sports, from those who make headlines and from those who lead by following.

These are from last year.
