The Most Successful Leaders Stay Engaged
During this time of uncertainty and isolation, it can be difficult to stay engaged, especially as leaders. We wanted to send out a few ways in which you can remain engaged in not just Leadership Montgomery activities, but also within our community:
Complete your CORE, SLM or EL Applications:
Applicationsfor the 2021 CORE, Emerging Leaders and Senior Leadership Montgomeryare open now. Each leadership program will begin in the fall. The applications are available online and can be completed as an applicant’s time allows. The deadline is April 17, 2020, but we will continue to monitor county and statewide closures and act accordingly.
Because we have cancelled the remaining leadership program informational events, we recorded a quick video to answer some FAQs about applying to and participating in one of our leadership programs. Click here to watch.
As a reminder, ALL events through the end of March and MoCo Insider have been cancelled. Next week, we will release more information regarding April events.
