Applications continue to be accepted for Leadership Garrett County
Organizers of Leadership Garrett County are looking for 20 emerging leaders from the non-profit, for-profit, and government sectors of the local economy and surrounding areas. Although final preparations are being made, seats are still available for admission into the second year program. The goal of the program is for members to emerge as more informed leaders and citizens to help ensure a bright future for Garrett County.
Leadership Garrett County consists of a total of six sessions over the next seven months. The first class will officially begin on October 11, and the class will conclude in May. Although a best consideration application date has been set for September 21, 2017, applications will continue to be accepted through October 5. Limited scholarships are also available.
During each session, class members will be exposed to program content on leadership and lectures from certified local trainers, in addition to key visits with Garrett County leaders and institutions, followed by discussions in the areas of art, education, government, etc.
Compared to other leadership programs across the state, Leadership Garrett County, combined with its classroom and experiential learning format, remains the lowest priced leadership program in the state.
Any organization wishing to sponsor an employee, or any individual wishing to apply, or inquire about a scholarship for the program should contact Connie Meyers, Director of Professional Development and Contract Training at Garrett College, at 301-387-3084 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
