Leadership Central Louisiana Now Accepting Applications

Released: 11/13/2006

Friday, Nov. 17 is the deadline to apply for Leadership Central Louisiana 2007, an eight-month program that promotes leadership education and community awareness.

Leadership Central Louisiana is an innovative program designed to take leaders to the next level – preparing leaders for new challenges and providing the skills and exposure needed to add leadership equity to any business or organization. The program builds leadership skills and awareness of the challenges and opportunities facing our community.

Leadership Central Louisiana exposes participants to a wide variety of community topics including the arts, politics, the economy, the military, community services, health care, education, tourism, public safety and law enforcement, and the environment and natural resources.

The group meets one day a month, usually a Thursday, beginning in January and ending in August 2007. The $750 cost covers the eight workshops, meals, and materials.

Anyone in a leadership position or aspiring to be a community leader is encouraged to apply. This will be the fifth year that LSU Alexandria’s Continuing Education Department has coordinated the program.

The deadline to apply is 12 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 17. For more information or an application, visit or call Cathy Andries, leadership coordinator, at (318) 473-6492.
