Rural City of Wangratta Community Leadership Programs 2016

Do you have a passion for your community?  Do you advocate on behalf of your club, committee or neighbourhood? Are you keen to expand your social and professional network, and learn how to make a difference?

People with passion and vision are central to how communities make decisions, and how projects and services are ultimately delivered. In support of the role our residents hold, The Rural City of Wangaratta is excited to announce our 2016 Community Leadership programs!

The aim of the program is to support Wangaratta’s emerging leaders to:
·        develop their leadership skills in a supportive environment
·        encourage involvement in our community’s Committees and Boards;
·        establish new and exciting links with like-minded people;
·        meet and work with Wangaratta’s decision makers
·        and contribute to a culture where community leadership is a recognised and rewarding activity.

Eligible applicants will participate in a four session program covering subjects such as; foundational leadership, leading others, leadership skills, public speaking, strategic planning and leading change. The program schedule has been developed in consideration of today’s busy working resident, with workshops scheduled for three full Sunday sessions and one weeknight.

There are three programs confirmed for 2016.
