On behalf of New Leaders Council Des Moines, we were thrilled to join YNPN members and other local leadership programs for networking on Sept. 10. It was a great opportunity to meet potential candidates for the NLC fellowship as our application and nomination period is in full swing.
New Leaders Council is a national nonprofit dedicated to preparing the next generation of progressive leaders. The Des Moines chapter is now recruiting for our sixth year of the NLC Institute, a leadership and professional development program for young progressives. NLC fellows receive training in leadership, entrepreneurship, nonprofit and political management, fundraising, communications, and more. There are fantastic opportunities to network with other young progressives and with leaders in politics, nonprofits, and business. The Institute runs January through May, one weekend per month. The only cost is a $30 application fee; there is no cost for the Institute itself.
Applications and nominations are open now at www.newleaderscouncil.org.
(Anyone can nominate a potential fellow – all you need is their name and email address. If you know someone who would be a good candidate, nominate them!) You don’t need to be nominated to apply. Applications are due November 1, 2015.
We hope to chat with more YNPN members at our upcoming events! Thanks for having us at yours.
