Accepting applications for 2015 NELD North Central (6/24/2014)

The Extension Leadership Team invites applications from agents, area and state specialists, and administrators who are interested in participating in the 2015 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.

The program requires full commitment and participation. In addition to personal and professional development resources, participants will attend four, on-site seminars as follows:

  • Session 1, January 21-24, 2015, Chicago, IL area, Understanding My Role as Leader
  • Session 2, April 10-18, 2015, Costa Rica, Entering the Realm of the Other
  • Session 3, July 12-16, 2015, Washington, DC, Leading in a Shared Power World
  • Session 4, September 16-19, 2015, St Paul, MN area, Integrating Leadership for Change

Participants' transportation, meals, lodging and seminar tuition will be supported with state funds.

Up to three participants will be selected from the applications that reach my office by Friday, Aug. 1, 2014. 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.
