Leadership Academy participants sought

Harford Community College is recruiting for the 2007 class of the Harford Leadership Academy.

In its 17th year, the academy is designed to promote the development of leaders in the community and create a committed, involved and diverse network of leaders in Harford County.

The academy encourages applications from middle- to upper-level management personnel who have the goal of providing leadership in the community, have an interest in accepting new and rewarding challenges, have demonstrated leadership skills, are new to the community and those who wish to learn more about Harford County and become involved as leaders.

Enrollment is limited to 36 adults. Applicants must live or work in Harford County, have demonstrated interest in volunteerism and the community, exhibit leadership potential, and be able to attend all seminars.

Businesses, agencies, community organizations or individuals may nominate candidates, or may apply themselves. A selection committee will review applications. Deadline for applications is Feb. 2.

The 2007 Harford Leadership Academy will begin with a mandatory dinner meeting March 9 and continues through March 10, followed by 13 consecutive Wednesday-morning seminars, concluding June 13.

The cost is $550. Several scholarships are available based on demonstrated need.
