Leadership Portales recruiting next class
The Leadership Portales committee is recruiting a limited number of individuals to participate in the 2018 cohort.
Leadership Portales is designed to provide a series of educational and participatory experiences for 20 individuals each year. The nine-month leadership training program consists of nine full-day sessions once a month starting with a retreat in September and ending with a graduation in May.
Sessions combine forums, tours, dialogue and interaction between speakers and participants. Subjects include government, quality of life, education, health care, economy, human services, industry, technology and community heritage. A retreat to Roswell to the Daniels Leadership Center on the campus of New Mexico Military Institute is planned for the fall.
With the class size limited to just 20, organizers say the program has the potential to build lifelong bonds between the class members and facilitate greater vision and better leadership in the community for years to come.
Monthly sessions will be held on the second Tuesday of each month. Organizers say the program requires a serious commitment to attend the sessions and participate fully in the activities.
Tuition is $400 and includes course materials, a shirt and logoed portfolio, travel and meals. Applications can be picked up at the Chamber or online Click Here . Deadline is July 15, 2017, tuition is due by Aug. 15.
