Leadership Akron is now accepting applications for its 2018-2019 Signature Program Class 35. Leadership Akron’s Signature Program is the Akron community’s foremost leadership experience, preparing participants for heightened involvement and leadership in the community. The program enables participants to grow their impact as community leaders, offering behind-the-scenes learning experiences and interaction with top decision-makers, while learning to appreciate the diverse perspectives of their classmates.
“Leadership Akron brings together leaders who share a commitment to building our community,” says Wendy Bolas, Leadership Akron interim president. “Through the Signature Program, participants are exposed to critical elements of the community and will collaborate together to address challenges, develop new solutions, and expand on their commitment to see where they can make a lasting impact.”
The program begins with a two-day opening retreat. Following the retreat, participants spend one full day each month addressing a specific aspect of the community. Focus areas include: social services, business, education, the arts, health and others.
Individuals who work or live in Summit County may apply. Deadline for application submission is April 13, 2018.
