Great Lakes Leadership Academy Application Deadline Approaches


Do you have an interest in vitalizing Michigan communities, agriculture, business or environmental sectors? Are you looking for opportunities to grow your public policy work?

The Great Lakes Leadership Academy (GLLA) is designed to bring together current and emerging leaders in government, academia, nonprofits and industry to broaden perspectives about key sustainability issues and consider how leadership for the common good can influence Michigan's future.

Based at Michigan State University’s (MSU) College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, GLLA has a mission to "promote positive change, economic vitality and resource conservation, and to enhance the quality of life in Michigan by encouraging leadership for the common good."

Applications are due Nov. 15, 2011, for the 2012 Emerging Leader Program in the GLLA.

“We are seeking a diverse group of outstanding candidates representing communities and the food system, agriculture, business, manufacturing, and natural resource and environmental sectors of the economy,” said Vicki Pontz, who coordinates the program.

Designed for developing individual leadership skills, the Emerging Leader Program will meet 12 days between April and October 2012.
