Impact Springfield Committee

Recently, Leadership Springfield has taken some exciting new steps to help to take a bigger role in Impacting the community.  We have formed a Leadership Needs Committee which is making recommendations to expand programming in order to deliver more leaders to impact the community.  We are looking for ways to tap into this energy left after graduation so that we can direct leadership resources to where they are needed most.  We have spent time with the Community Focus Report as well as scanning other civic and community-based leadership programs for best practices and we have some exciting recommendations coming up that will increase and focus our ability to Impact our community.
