Do you want to enhance your leadership abilities?
The Minnesota FFA Alumni President's Circle is seeking 20 interested individuals to participate in an exciting, life changing personal development program. The Minnesota FFA Alumni Association has created a systematic, sustainable leadership enhancement program for FFA Alumni in Minnesota. This new leadership program involves enhancing and building alumni member leadership skills which, in turn, will sustain and improve agriculture education in Minnesota.
During the past twelve months, 20 individuals participated in the "President's Circle" leadership training program delivered by Welchlin Communication Strategies. Core training included a strong focus on teamwork, conflict resolution, mentor leadership, and strategic planning.
The program is designed for individuals looking to enhance their current leadership skills and make a positive difference for Minnesota agriculture. The first training for new participants will be held at Camp Friendship, near Annandale, starting at 7 PM on Thursday, November 17 and ending at noon on Saturday, November 19. Please contact Fred Troendle, President's Circle Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and/or to indicate your desire to participate.
