Calling all leaders!
Leadership Columbia is accepting applications for the Leadership Columbia Class of 2014 from April 1 through May 15, 2013. This program provides existing and emerging local leaders with opportunities to enhance their civic knowledge and network, while developing the skills necessary to assume leadership roles and exposing them to involvement opportunities in the community.
Check out the video below to hear more about the program!
Applications are blindly reviewed and rated by a panel of Leadership Columbia Alumni; applicants are then interviewed by a separate alumni panel. The class is chosen from the combined scores of the application review and interview. The selection criteria include civic involvement, leadership potential, diversity of perspective and commitment to the leadership program and the community. Leadership Columbia selects 60 members each year, with no more than two employees per company or organization.
Tuition for the Leadership Columbia program is anticipated to be $1,825 for Columbia Chamber members and $2,225 for non-chamber members for the 2014 class. Tuition includes membership in the Leadership Columbia Alumni Association for two years. Partial scholarships are available, based on need, and will be considered only after candidate selection is made. There is a $25 application fee.
