Set amid 600 acres of Sonoran beauty in North Scottsdale, Taliesin West was more than Wright’s personal winter residence and studio. It was also the home of the Taliesin Fellowship, a group of 23 young architectural “disciples” who built the complex under Wright’s direction. Long regarded by architectural critics as a masterpiece, the U.S. government declared Taliesin West a National Historic Landmark in 1987. You’ll be drawn closer into Wright’s world by visiting his living quarters and the gracious Taliesin West Garden Room. You’ll feel the beauty and peace of the spaces where Wright welcomed the many famous guests he entertained at his desert home. $125 per person includes transportation, admission, group coordinator, taxes, and gratuities. 6:30 - 7:30 pm APCA Welcome Reception Come enjoy a cocktail with fellow APCA members. 7:30 - 9:30 pm Dinner & Opening Session w/ Andy Stumpf Leadership and Contingency Planning in high risk, high consequence environments can be the difference between success and failure, life, and death. Leadership is a professional license and must be treated as such. It will only improve with practice. Occupation does not define leadership. There is good leadership, and there is bad. The principles of the SEAL Teams are found off the battlefield, in highly successful teams and organizations around the globe. Andy Stumpf is a man on a mission. Born and raised in Northern California, Andy knew from an early age that he wanted to be Navy SEAL. In 1996, at just 17 years old, he enlisted in the Navy. Shortly after, he began perhaps the most grueling training program in the U.S. military: Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL Training. In his 17-year SEAL career, Andy completed 10 deployments and executed hundreds of combat operations throughout the world in support of the Global War on Terror. His awards and decorations include five Bronze Star Medals (four with Valor), the Purple Heart, the Joint Service Commendation Medal, the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal with Valor, three Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medals, two Combat Action Ribbons, and the Presidential Unit Citation. In 2015, Andy set two world records after jumping from 37,000 feet and flying over 18 miles in a wingsuit, a nearly fatal feat that was part of his effort to raise a million dollars for the Navy SEAL Foundation. In 2016, he starred in the hit television show Hunted, currently airing on CBS. He was also featured in the History Channel documentary “Navy SEALs: America’s Secret Warriors.” Andy is now dedicated to ensuring that the lessons learned from over a decade of sustained combat in Special Operations are retained by leaders in the business world.
