CLICK HERE for Leadership 49 Application & Reference Form 2016

Applications are now available for the third year of Leadership 49! Leadership 49 is an eight-month leadership development program for Park County citizens focused on developing skills and increasing knowledge about challenges and opportunities throughout the county. The program prepares leaders and equips them with the skills, knowledge, and vision to become involved citizens. Participants will also have the opportunity to engage in networking opportunities and a small group project.

“I really am benefiting from this course,” shared a previous participant. “I’m beginning to realize that I have a very narrow view, or understanding, of the world around me. This class has been a big eye opener.”

Leadership 49 will begin in late September and culminate in April 2017. A group of 15-18 participants will be selected from a geographic and career cross-section of Park County. Successful applicants will demonstrate strong interest and commitment to the program. Sessions will take place in Clyde Park, Cooke City, Emigrant, Gardiner, Livingston, and Springdale. Participants should not miss more than two sessions and attendance at the Retreat in September is mandatory.

Applications are due by Friday, July 1. Successful applicants will pay a $250 tuition fee to help cover the costs of administering the program, including meals. Scholarships may be available. Transportation is not included in tuition. Please contact us at 222-4156 or park@montana.edu with questions or for further information.
