Leadership Livingston looking for participants, nonprofits

Leadership Livingston — which pivoted to a digital meeting platform because of the pandemic — is beginning its 2020-21 series with a call for nominations of potential community leaders.

Since 1992, Leadership Livingston has developed over 400 leaders, many of whom have gone on to serve in county leadership positions, or advanced into leadership roles within their organizations.

In its unique blend of sessions, participants learn about the community, as well as the issues faced by its leaders. They then apply what they learn in an immersive team project the involves working with a local nonprofit to identify its mission and strategize its future.

If you know someone who could benefit from this experience, applications are open to anyone 15 and up who is connected to Livingston County. Tuition for this session is $1,200. Participants must attend all sessions — which run 8:30 a.m. to noon two Fridays a month beginning Oct. 16 — to obtain a certificate of completion. All session dates are listed on the Leadership Livingston website, as well as on the applications.

Leadership Livingston is also looking for nonprofits to apply for inclusion in projects.
