“Leadership Lafayette” is Accepting Projects Ideas from the Local Community – Deadline is February 11 at 5 pm
Leadership Lafayette is an eight month leadership program offered by the LOU Chamber of Commerce that provides business, non-profit, educators, community and University leaders with a deeper understanding of our community. Through monthly meetings, workshops and projects the class members learn about the economic, government, educational, healthcare and community elements that shape the LOU.
The class is divided up into teams with each group selecting a project which can be accomplished by August of each year. This may range from helping a non-profit build support for a new project, organizing resource that will help organizations collaborate on a mutual goal, or tackle a need in the community.
Past projects have included helping launch the Yokna Sculpture Trail, develop the welcome signs for the Lafayette County, assist LOFT in creating the Night for Nonprofits event are just a few.
Leadership Lafayette is accepting projects ideas from local community organizations for the class to consider for 2020. The project should be of a scope and scale that a team can complete the project by August. The project may be to help evaluate and energize an existing program, help launch a new project, or aid in finding resources to help the organization be more effective in their mission.
The teams will be provided with a list of proposed projects at the February meeting with a chance to reach out to possible community partner to evaluate and adopt the project. All that is require for consideration is a short outline of your project/ need and a contact person that the team would connect with to learn more.
Even if your project is not selected this is an exceptional opportunity for you to reach out to community leaders to help them learn about your organization.
Deadline to share your project: Tuesday, Feb 11, 2020 by 5 pm.
