Program for Emerging Leaders Launches
Applications open Jan. 15 for ASHA’s July leadership development program for emerging leaders, the second of two 2014 leadership development cohorts. The application deadline is Feb. 25.
This program is open to ASHA members who want to develop or enhance their leadership skills in preparation for volunteer leadership in ASHA or a state association. Applicants may not have prior service on the ASHA Board of Directors and should have at least one of the following:
  • Interest in developing or enhancing leadership skills and in a future committee, board, council or Board of Directors position.

  • Nomination or self-nomination for a past appointed or elected ASHA position.

  • Previous or current service on an ASHA committee, council, board (except for Board of Directors) or SIG coordinating committee.

  • Service as a volunteer; as a committee member or chair; or on the Board of Directors of a state association.

  • Service as an ASHA state education advocacy leader; state Medicare administrative contractor network member; or state advocate for reimbursement.

The program will kick off with a full-day workshop on Sat.,
July 12, at the ASHA national office in Rockville, Md. Activities throughout the remainder of the year-long program will be conducted remotely.
As part of the program, all participants complete an individual learning project. Preference will be given to applicants whose proposed projects focus on assisting members in their home state outside of their work setting—such as planning a state association conference, managing a state grassroots advocacy campaign, managing a state association board of directors initiative, or organizing an early career professional group within the state. Preference also is given to affiliates of ASHA Special Interest Groups and past members of the National Student Speech Language Hearing Association.
The emerging leaders cohort will accept 30 participants. For more information visit on.asha.org/ld-program or contact Haley Jones, volunteer operations manager, at hjones@asha.org. Image Not Available
