The Leadership Development Academy gives participants the opportunity to learn about Rock County’s history, economy, culture and government. The facilitator employs a variety of learning strategies to explore and develop participants’ leadership skills, including site visits, case studies, professional presentations, role-playing activities, multimedia presentations and dialogues with various groups. In addition, each LDA participant helps to produce a collaborative project that addresses a specific community need. Many of these projects have made Rock County a better place to live, work and play.
Mission: The Leadership Development Academy of Rock County inspires leaders to build and strengthen our community.
Vision: Our vision is to be a premier leadership organization that will empower future leaders to create a better place to live.
The LDA program begins each September with a two-day retreat and continues with one full-day session per month from October through May.
Each class is limited to 25 people, so don’t delay in identifying your organization’s candidate! Tuition is $1,200 per person; some scholarship opportunities are available.
