It’s an exciting day for Leadership Springfield! Applications are now open for Classes 33 & 34 which means Leadership Springfield is expanding! We’re making this change to open up more opportunities for local professionals to receive the kind of community-based leadership development that Leadership Springfield offers.
Beginning next fall, we will offer two Signature Classes: Class 33 & Class 34. The experience these classes receive will be the same experience as previous classes. The programs will run in parallel and the curriculum is unchanged from recent years. The application process also remains the same: our board members carefully review each application and submit a confidential vote of their choices; a smaller selection committee then rounds out each class to achieve balance in terms of professional backgrounds, leadership experience, time in the Springfield community, race, gender, and industry.
While we will have twice the number of openings, the process will remain competitive and selective. In fact, we’re anticipating a greater interest this year due to the expansion. A strong application is critical. We do take the time to read each and every application carefully. Applications open Feb. 1 and the deadline to apply is April 17. Share this with anyone you feel would be a great addition to the program. Applicants may apply online or find out more information about the process at here.
