    We have been given a great opportunity to send some of our members to a Kansas Leadership Center Training (KLC). If you have not been to a KLC training before, it focuses on leadership as an action not a position.

    The lasting impact we hope to achieve is to have a motivated and well equipped membership with the ability to reposition their agency in the community focusing on their contribution to the health, economic vitality, conservation, and community connection.

    There are a limited amount of scholarships for this training and we would like to send a diverse group. If you are interested, send in a short paragraph on why you want to go to this training. Paragraphs are due by Friday, November 18th. I will contact all of the people who are interested to make sure they know what they are committing to, answer questions and make sure they understand the goal for KRPA. Then we will make our final decision on who will be able to go to the training. This is a fairly large time commitment and a different learning experience that will help move our profession forward.

    Please contact me if you have any questions.
