Center for Leadership
The AUSA Center for Leadership provides expertise and depth to help educate, inspire, and connect AUSA chapters, ROTC units, and the Total Army.
AUSA's General (Retired) Bob Brown, AUSA’s President and CEO, established the Center for Leadership on October 1st, 2021 to help educate, inspire, and connect leaders of character and cohesive teams across the Total Army. The Center for Leadership participates in myriad forums and platforms to share leader development ideas and best practices. This includes the “Leading Great Teams” podcast (released on the 2nd Monday of each month), the “On Leadership” section of Army Magazine, and several AUSA-sponsored symposiums and conferences each year.

Leadership Fellows Program
The Center for Leadership is building a Leadership Fellows Program to provide retired senior leaders (General Officers, Officers, Command Sergeants Major, etc.) that will help teach and facilitate important leadership discussions with AUSA chapters. This initiative will mirror the diversity of the Total Army as young leaders continue to learn how to build and lead cohesive teams within their units.
