Provide a written report in advance of and short presentation on Project results at the 2011 conference to be held in San Antonio, Texas.

NCDA Leadership Academy participants will benefit from:

  • A $500 travel stipend (each year for two consecutive years) to support attendance at the 2010 and 2011 NCDA annual conferences.

This highly experiential leadership development opportunity spends the year refining and strengthening leadership skills with the help of the NCDA Board, other members, and an association project.   Read about all five of the Leadership Academy classes on the NCDA website under Professional Development.
