Empower The Leader In You!
The Leadership Development Academy (LDA) is looking to empower more leaders across Rock County. This means we’re looking for the next wave of our program participants for the upcoming class of 2020-21. Who would you recommend for this life changing experience? You? A friend? A co-worker?
A Message from the Executive Director
The Leadership Development Academy of Rock County is honored, excited, and humbled to announce that our organization recently received Forward Janesville’s 2020 Educator of the Year Award!
The program consists of one full-day session per month for nine months of leadership training. The program also offers repeated networking opportunities with fellow program participants and more than 50 community leaders. It wraps up with a final team project that makes a lasting, positive impact on the community.
New this year is the Youth LDA pilot program, which allows up to five (5) local high school seniors to take the LDA journey alongside our adult participants. Applications for Y-LDA will open on April 13, 2020. Please contact us for more information or to express interest in participating.
The leaders that emerge from the LDA experience are fundamentally changed and deeply connected to our community. If you have been touched by the LDA, you know how profound this experience can be. To learn more about LDA and what our program is all about, visit our blog.
Take action now and recommend someone for LDA. Please direct applicants to fill out an application and submit it directly online. Application submission deadline is June 1, 2020.
Thank you in advance for your consideration to apply for the program or recommend someone. LDA’s mission is to inspire leaders to build and strengthen our community. LDA’s vision is to be a premier leadership organization that will empower future leaders to create a better place to live. I look forward to strengthening Rock County with you.
