Harrisonburg, VA (March 10, 2015) — The Cooperative Association of Resort Exchangers (C.A.R.E.) is excited to welcome Colonel Arthur J. Athens to the Annapolis conference and eager for attendees to experience, learn and grow from an extraordinary leader. Colonel Athens, USMCR (Ret.), Director of the U.S. Naval Academy’s Vice Admiral James B. Stockdale Center for Ethical Leadership and a member of the Academy’s Senior Leadership Team, will be the keynote speaker at C.A.R.E.’s 60th semi-annual conference in Annapolis, MD.
Colonel Athens graduated from the Naval Academy with a bachelor’s in Operations Research and went on to earn a master’s degree from Naval Postgraduate School and the Army’s School of Advanced Military Studies. Serving in the Marine Corps for 30 years of combined active duty and reserve service, Colonel Athens served a myriad of positions.

With his vast experience and deep roots in leadership, it is fitting that Colonel Athens’ keynote presentation will address that precise topic, “Back to the Basics: the Fundamentals of Extraordinary Leadership”.
“Great teams, organizations and schools are always very proficient in the fundamentals that drive success in their environment. Great leaders are also characterized by their proficiency with the fundamentals of influencing others to achieve a common objective. But what are the fundamentals of extraordinary leadership? This presentation will address the four leadership fundamentals that differentiate extraordinary leaders from ordinary ones.”
The conference will be held May 2-5, 2015 and hosted at The Westin Annapolis in Annapolis, MD. The room block is now available and will close on April 9, 2015. Registration will open March 2015, please visit C.A.R.E.’s website, www.care-online.org for more details.
