The Leadership Academy begins with a full-day retreat at which leadership concepts will be introduced and participants will get to know one another. Following the retreat, five monthly sessions will cover various leadership concepts. The Academy concludes with a graduation ceremony and induction as an Academy Partner.
The monthly sessions are held at various locations around the city to acquaint participants with the services and programs offered by community organizations. Representatives of these organizations are invited to make a brief presentation and give tours of the facility.
Some of the topics covered include “Communication Skills and How Adults Learn” with Kathy Story; “Leadership through Service” with Ed Glasscock; “Service through Politics” with Representative Scott Brinkman; “Mediating or Negotiation: Resolving Conflict” with Hon. Steve Mershon; “Character, Integrity & Your Moral Code—Developing/Defining Your Personal Ethics” with Professor Al Gini; and “Overcoming Resistance to Change in your Practice” with Donna King Perry.
Tuition is $950, which covers approximately 20 hours of CLE credit (including 9.0 ethics hours), lunches and printed materials. A limited number of scholarships are available. Note: All CLE is pending accreditation.
