The High Lakes Leadership Initiative Board of Directors is now seeking nominations for the class of 2015. This local leadership development opportunity is now entering into its sixth year of programming. This learning opportunity is unlike any other and is for those who live, work and/or conduct business in Union County.

“I really enjoyed this program. I was able to connect with many individuals that are striving to make a positive change within the community,” said Hannah West at Iowa Workforce Development, class of 2014. “I learned about a lot of different resources and programs that Union County have to offer. I look forward to taking what I learned and applying it every day to help improve myself, my family, friends, and other community members.”

Nine sessions will be held on a bi-weekly basis starting Jan. 28, 2015, through May 13, 2015. The sessions are held in various locations throughout Union County and focus on community capitals and instilling leadership skills. The program is an opportunity to provide professional development in your workplace on an annual basis.

Nominations must be received by Sept. 30. To make a nomination or for more information, call 641-782-2003 or visit www.highlakesleadership.com.
