The Meta-Leadership Summits for Preparedness sought to facilitate the development of city/state, multi-sector organizational connections and individual partnerships before disasters occur. Evaluation of program effectiveness and impact was a priority for the funder and partners. An extensive evaluation methodology was designed. The study aimed to measure participants' reactions to the Summit immediately after its conclusion, as well as approximately six months after the Summit. Web-based surveys were administered to collect data.
Over 90 percent of respondents agreed that attendance at the Summit was a valuable use of their time, rated the overall quality of the Summit as good or outstanding, and would recommend the Summit to their colleagues. Eighty percent of respondents had used meta-leadership concepts or principles in the six months since attending a Summit. They reported that using meta-leadership concepts or principles had made a positive difference for them and/or their organization.
