Leadership Academy accepting applications

From local sources

The Dubois County Leadership Academy is seeking applicants for its 2014 class.

The Leadership Academy will meet a minimum of six times in four-hour sessions at various locations across the county. The group will meet at least twice each in Jasper, Huntingburg and Ferdinand from early April through early August.

Past class topics have included leadership essentials, problem solving, government and public service, communications and religious and civic leadership. This year, the steering committee is placing an increased focus on business principals and entrepreneurship by combining these topics to re-purpose the problem-solving session. Each academy culminates with a graduation ceremony and the presentation of projects.

Academy applications should be submitted to Chris James at cjames@ferdinandindiana.org or mailed to the Town of Ferdinand, Attention: Chris James, 2065 Main St., Ferdinand IN 47532. Applications must be submitted by Friday, March 7.

The Dubois County Leadership Academy is a countywide initiative sponsored by the Leadership Pillars of the Ferdinand and Jasper HomeTown Competitiveness initiatives, the City of Jasper, the City of Huntingburg, the Dubois County Community Foundation and Vincennes University Jasper Campus.
The steering committee is in the process of transforming the organization into a 501-c 3 non-profit, standalone entity.
