LIFE is an annual program (typically one day and now a 3-day series for 2021) that provides leadership development and networking opportunities for the Colorado, Wyoming and New Mexico region. The goals of the event include:

  • Developing leadership skills & competence
  • Stimulating dialog and reflection on leadership issues and concepts
  • Encouraging networking
  • Building and strengthening the community of professionals connected to public and environmental health in our region

Who should attend?

This event is OPEN to the PUBLIC, and draws people from a variety of diverse sectors and communities. It is primarily intended for those who work to create and sustain the health and well-being of people and the environment, and for those who are interested in developing and refining their leadership skills. It is NOT limited to members of the host organizations or their graduates.

History of the Event:

In 2004, the Regional Institute for Health and Environmental Leadership (RIHEL) began Autumn in Aspen as an annual continuing leadership education event for friends and alumni of our institute. This 17th annual event continues that tradition under the event name Leadership is for Everyone (LIFE), and for the ninth time includes co-hosts, this year the Colorado Environmental Health Association (CEHA).

For the past eight years, this event has sold out at or near a capacity of 150 participants. The event draws encore attendees as well as a strong showing of attendees who are new to and/or unaffiliated with the co-hosts and the event.
