Leadership academy application deadline approaches

A great opportunity exists for you – but you must act by Sept. 30 to seize it. The Great Lakes Leadership Academy (GLLA) seeks applicants for the 2014 Emerging Leader Program and 2014-15 Leadership Advancement Program. This news release gives details on both programs.

The academy helps develop the next generation of leaders in the areas of communities and food systems, agriculture, natural resources, manufacturing and the environment.

Rita Klavinski, Michigan State University Extension educator in the Health and Nutrition Institute, is a 2008 graduate of the Leadership Advancement Program. Rita believes her time with the academy was time well spent.

Rita said, “The program was a life-changing experience for me, both personally and professionally. The work that I am doing now in community food systems is a direct result from my issues team project. The academy provided a vast array of cutting-edge leadership content and experiences that I continuously use in my leadership roles. Personally, I became more aware of my ability to be an advocate for others and be a servant leader.”

The GLLA will accept applications now through Sept. 30 for both programs at www.glla.msu.edu. Partial scholarships are available from GLLA for both programs to help offset the cost for those with demonstrated need. Direct questions to Vicki Pontz at pontzv@msu.edu or at 517-432-8685.
