Applications are now being accepted for the 2017-18 Leadership program, which begins with an orientation in August and an overnight retreat on Beaver Island in September. The program then continues with one day-long session per month through next May.
WHAT'S IT LIKE? Recent program graduate Ashley Cousens, executive director of the Boyne Area Chamber, says "Leadership Charlevoix County is a great way to learn more about what services and resources the county has to offer. For me, the value was not only in the information provided, but also in the opportunity for self-reflection. How often do we carve out time to reflect on our lives and careers, without being prompted? This program requires self-reflection and as a result many participants experienced important transformations throughout the nine months."
Another graduate, Emily Selph, says LCC is "an amazing program, which has given us an opportunity to embark, both individually and as a class, on this journey, this chance to come together as strangers, to connect, to grow, and to accomplish something that will truly make a difference."
APPLICATIONS and more details are available at www.leadershipcharlevoixcounty.com or by calling Ashley Cousens at the Boyne Chamber, 231-582-6222.
