Every year we say it, and every year we mean it…this year’s Leadership Academy promises to be one of the finest the Carolinas District has ever produced! And you can’t beat the return on investment – LEADERSHIP ACADEMY IS FREE TO ATTEND. The only cost to you is $10 for lunch.
Join us at Richmond Community College in Hamlet, NC, on January 6, 2018, from 9am to 4:30pm. To register, please visit our Eventbrite registration website, select the green “Register” button, and then make your selection from the course list presented to you. PLEASE NOTE, YOU MAY REGISTER FOR ONLY ONE COURSE AND ONE COURSE ONLY.
In addition to offering classes covering all core chapter officer positions (President, Secretary, Treasurer, Music & Performance, etc.) as well as some singing classes for non-chapter officers (Polecat II and Tag Singing), we are excited to announce a full-day Youth-in-Harmony course led by our own Dr. Bill Adams. Our faculty has also expanded to include a Society staff member direct from Harmony Hall (Antonio Lombardi, Manager of Chapter Leadership & Education) and a Certified BHS Leadership Facilitator (Terry Reynolds). Antonio and Terry will present courses developed by the Barbershop Harmony Society’s Healthy Chapter Initiative that are designed to strengthen your chapter through visioning, building relationships, performing self-discoveries and assessments, and motivating your volunteer members to support your chapter’s purpose.
It is important to note that, although Leadership Academy is geared toward the development of chapter officers specifically, everyone in your chapter (including your Director) should be encouraged to participate. If you are interested in growing and retaining your chapter membership, establishing long-term strategies for development, singing at a higher level, developing the bench strength of your leadership team, programming your chapter meeting agendas to attain the highest levels of productivity blended with fun, et al, then this year’s Leadership Academy should not be missed.
