LYONS, NE - In the upcoming weeks, Cedar County adults and high school students will be able to register for three different leadership programs that will cover areas such as Understanding Personalities, Leadership Styles, Connecting Generations, Collaboration and Networking, Conflict Resolution, Entrepreneurial and Innovative Thinking, Community Growth Matters and Leading Local Economic Development. Individuals can choose to attend one, two, or all three programs.
The first program will consist of two meetings. Understanding Personalities will be covered at the first meeting which will be held on February 17, 2009 from 6:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. The second meeting, Leadership Styles, will be held on March 3rd, same time.  The location of the meetings will be determined depending on where the majority of registrants live.  The remaining 2 programs consisting of six classes will conclude with the last class scheduled tentatively, as May 26th.

"It doesn't matter if you are a stay-at-home parent, a freshman in high school, small business owner, community volunteer, or the chairman of the board, there will be information and activities that will help you develop and enhance your leadership skills," said Stephanie Fritz with the Center for Rural Affairs.

The Cedar County leadership program is for those that want to get involved with their community and have ideas and skills that would help their community thrive.  Personal, professional, and community development are three major goals of these programs.  Individuals are fortunate to have these classes available due to outside grant funding financing the costs of these programs.  There will be a minimal registration fee to cover meals and material costs.  Deadline to Register is February 13th.

This project is funded in part by grants from the Nebraska Department of Economic Development and USDA Rural Development administered by the City of Hartington Economic Development, Village of Fordyce and the Center for Rural Affairs.
