Deadline near for next session of Leadership Charlevoix County

Does your business or organization have a staff person who is ready to take on a leadership role?

Then it may be time to consider enrolling them in Leadership Charlevoix County.

The program, which has graduated 73 participants in the past five years, is now recruiting for its sixth year.

The application deadline is July 11 to be a part of this exciting, skill-building program that will expose you to leadership resources, people and opportunities throughout the county.

The program is for people of all ages—newcomers and natives—who want to examine regional issues that impact us all.

The program includes:

  • Interactive monthly sessions with our region’s leaders
  • Camaraderie with classmates on the same journey
  • Doors opened to explore professional and personal interests
  • An impactful community service project

Participants typically rave about the program. Dan Reynolds, who completed Leadership Charlevoix County in 2014 commented:

“What I expected was a series of lectures and exercises. What I got was a front-row seat to witness and interact with the community’s most influential leaders, a network of resources I will depend on throughout my career, and a new perspective on what it means to be a leader.”

The 2016-17 program begins with an orientation in August and an overnight retreat on Beaver Island in September.

Participants will be matched with a mentor who will help open doors to personal and professional growth. The session culminates with a graduation ceremony in May.
