Accepting applications for 2017 NELD North Central (7/14/2016)

The Extension Leadership Team invites applications from agents, area and state specialists, and administrators who are interested in participating in the 2017 NELD North Central program. Applicants must be full-time employees with at least three years of service with NDSU Extension. A program overview provided by University of Minnesota Extension (the host institution) provides a good description of what it's all about. Participants' transportation, meals, lodging and seminar tuition will be supported with state funds.

The program is a cumulative experience requiring full commitment and participation. In addition to completion of personal assessment tools, pre-work assignments and webinars between sessions, participants will attend four, on-site seminars as follows:

  • Session 1, January 23-27, 2017, Chicago, IL, Understanding My Role as Leader
  • Session 2, March 31-April 8, 2017, Costa Rica, Entering the Realm of the Other
  • Session 3, July 10-14, 2017, Washington, DC, Leading in a Shared Power World
  • Session 4, September 19-22, 2017, St Paul, MN, Integrating Leadership for Change

One or two participants will be selected from the applications that reach my office by Friday, Aug. 12, 2016. Please allow enough time to get the needed signatures along the way.

As you consider whether or not to apply, you may find it helpful to visit with a few of your colleagues who have participated in recent years.

  • 2016   Julie Garden-Robinson, Penny Nester & Todd Weinmann
  • 2015   Hans Kandel, Karla Monson & Amy Tichy
  • 2014   Marcia Hellandsaas & Lisa Pederson
  • 2013   Chris Augustin, Vanessa Hoines, Dena Kemmet, LoAyne Voigt & Joe Zeleznik

We invite you to consider this opportunity to look at leadership in a new way.
