The opening retreat of Leadership Academy was like nothing I’d experienced before; we each walked into a room of 36 strangers and walked out as a family. The opportunity to get to know one another on a personal and professional level is invaluable; I’m confident the connections made will continue long after graduation. As a relatively new professional to Madison County I quickly learned that the LAMC is a great investment of time and money.
Each activity laid the foundation for our class by assessing our learning and leadership styles which served as a great way to get to know one another. Everyone in the class had a different reason for being there yet everyone had the same goal in mind- to become better servant leaders and help Madison County be the best it can be.
Thank you to Pam and Beth and the many visitors who joined us during the retreat to share how the LAMC experience impacted their lives and inspired them to become more active in the communities in which they live and work. The retreat served as a launch pad for the many lessons we will learn and people we will meet, so much so, that I find myself excited for the next session!
