LAMC "The Leadership Experience"
Originally sponsored by Anderson University and the Madison County Chamber, Leadership Academy of Madison County is an educational program designed to offer a probing study of community challenges and to explore methods of meeting those challenges through the discovery and practice of 21st-century leadership skills.
Leadership Academy is committed to providing Madison County with a diverse, highly skilled and competent core of community servant leaders.
The purpose of the Leadership Academy of Madison County is to develop servant leaders by exposing our participants to the best practices for community leadership. Through a format of lecture, open dialogue, on-site visitation and class interaction, a participant will be exposed to capacities of leadership such as visioning, collaboration, community building activities and being a good Board member. We will meet twice during the year with the Youth Leadership Academy and service projects are coordinated through the Academy.
