Let’s Celebrate!

We are celebrating the 10th Anniversary of our signature leadership program.

Emergence: Personal Foundations of Effective Leadership is SLA’s core leadership program. It is an eight-week highly interactive and engaging training opportunity ideal for emerging or experienced leaders seeking to enhance their leadership capabilities. At the end of the program, participants can expect to be better equipped to lead the change they want to see in the businesses, not-for-profits, civic groups, and communities they represent.  

Over the last 10 years nearly 400 local leaders have completed the Emergence program.  Within five years of completing the program, 75% of graduates go on to take a leadership role in the community, 50% have served on a nonprofit board of directors, and 39% have had a promotion. 

“We are inviting our friends, graduates, and stakeholders to celebrate a decade of developing local leadership.” said Mitch Isaacs, SLA’s Executive Director. 

The 10 Year Anniversary Celebration event is scheduled for Wednesday, August 30th from 4:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. at The Innovation Connector.  The program will feature stories of graduates over the last 10 years along, with evidence of Shafer Leadership Academy’s impact.  “This is truly a celebration event,” Isaacs offered. “Our guests will enjoy complimentary food, drinks, and of course fellowship. While the event last 90 minutes, only about 20 minutes will be spent in a formal ‘program’. We want our guests focused on interacting with each other, and most importantly, celebrating the amazing accomplishments of our graduates.”
