Training scheduled; For the Project 17 economic development initiative

Thursday, January 3, 2013

The Kansas Leadership Center will conduct training for the Project 17 initiative in February and August in Wichita.

Project 17 is a multi-year partnership among 17 Southeastern Kansas counties, including Bourbon, aimed at improving the economy and health of the region.

Along with Bourbon County, the region includes Allen, Anderson, Chautauqua, Cherokee, Coffey, Crawford, Elk, Franklin, Greenwood, Labette, Linn, Miami, Montgomery, Neosho, Wilson and Woodson counties.

Deadline to apply is Jan. 20. For more information and to apply, visit http://www.kansasleadershipcenter.org/pr....

"The program is for individuals who care about improving the health or economic vitality of the 17 county region and who are willing to work in a team to make progress on these issues," Program Associate Thomas Stanley said in an email.

Dates and times are Feb. 25 from 3 p.m.-8 p.m., 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Feb. 26, 8 a.m.-8 p.m. Feb. 27 and 8 a.m.-noon Feb. 28. The summer dates are Aug. 14-16, but times have not been posted. The location in Wichita also isn't specified.

The program includes six days of intense training and six meetings with a team coach to develop and implement a leadership intervention, the email said.

Lodging and most meals will be provided, but the program requires a long-term commitment to working as part of a community action team to help achieve community health or economic development goals, the email said.
