The U-Lead Advisory Academy, a leadership development program put on by University of Minnesota Extension, has had five classes since it started running in 2007. On May 8, 2015, Extension brought together thirty alumni from across all the classes to extend their networks further, explore leadership questions, and support one another's work.
The day involved activities to build relationships and get to know others in the room, chances to talk about projects and initiatives (and provide insights, resources, and feedback), and dig deep into how the community can support one another as leaders.
The group resolved to continue meeting to deepen and broaden connections to improve the work being done in communities across the state.
If the U-Lead Advisory Academy sounds like something you are interested in being a part of, registration will be opening soon. Visit the program website for more information.
