Applications for the NCBA Leadership Academy's Class of 2012 are being accepted through Dec. 31. Details, including an application and fact sheet, are accessible via the NCBA website at www.ncbar.org, under the heading of Leadership Academy on the homepage. The application and fact sheet are also accessible via the links above.
The Leadership Academy was implemented last year under the leadership of then-President Gene Pridgen by the NCBA's Young Lawyer Initiatives Task Force in cooperation with the Center for Creative Leadership, a world renowned leadership training organization headquartered in Greensboro
Funding for the program is provided by Lawyers Mutual Liability Insurance Co. of North Carolina.
The mission of the Leadership Academy is to help young lawyers become more effective leaders in their communities, whether their communities be the legal profession, their firms, legal departments or other workplaces, other organizations with which they are associated, or their local, state, national or even international communities, or any other environments where lawyers regularly have calls or opportunities for leadership.
Members of the NCBA Young Lawyers Division who have been in practice for two to ten years are eligible to apply. Applicants for the inaugural class who were not selected, who otherwise remain eligible, are encouraged to re-submit applications.
Candidates will be notified of their selection by the end of January 2012. The first two sessions of the Leadership Academy will be held March 2-3 at the N.C. Bar Center in Cary. Session 3 (March 30) and Session 4 (May 4) will also take place at the Bar Center.
Session 5 on June 1 will be held at the Center for Creative Leadership campus in Greensboro. The final session will be held on Friday, June 22, at the NCBA Annual Meeting in Wilmington, followed by a graduation presentation during the Saturday morning, June 23, General Session of the NCBA Annual Meeting.
