The goal of the Leadership Academy is to identify, educate, and inspire future leaders who wish to pursue other positions of leadership within the Union, personal career, or the community-at-large. We believe that with intensive training, member leaders will gain and cultivate the knowledge and skills necessary to confidently lead and influence others.
The 2020 Academy will follow the same format as the past two years. Workshops will be on one Saturday each month from March through June. The requirements to graduate from the Leadership Academy are to attend and participate in at least 3 of the 4 Saturday workshops during 2020 and complete a project that will be assigned during the 3rd workshop.
We currently have 7 applicants for the 2020 Leadership Academy. The Leadership Development Committee wants to recruit at least 3 member leader applicants from each region and division. The applicants so far include 1 each from the HSS, SE, and Tech Divisions, Region 1, and Region 2. We have 2 applicants from Region 3.
