The application period for the first Leadership Development Program of 2014, designed specifically for ASHA member audiologists and speech-language pathologists in health care settings, opens Oct. 15 and closes Nov. 26.
The year-long program begins Thursday, April 10, 2014, in conjunction with ASHA’s Health Care/Business Institute in Las Vegas. Thirty participants will be chosen, with preference given to those who are affiliates of Special Interest Groups or past members of the National Student Speech-Language-Hearing Association. Applicants may not have prior service on an ASHA or SIG committee, board, council, working group or task force.
After the opening workshop, the program continues over the course of a year with multiple webinars. Those in the program must identify and develop a learning project and participate in a learning team with program peers.
By identifying and developing a learning project, each participant applies the leadership techniques and personal development goals established during the program. The project may focus on the workplace or on a community or other volunteer organization. Examples include:
  • A project for the state association.

  • Developing a support group or family training program.

  • Working with a team to implement a new clinical or educational program.

  • Working to advocate for reimbursement, legislation or policy change.

A second program—for emerging leaders—is designed for those who want to develop or enhance leadership skills required to become a state association or ASHA volunteer leader. The application period for that program, which begins in July 2014 at the ASHA national office in Rockville, Md., will open in January 2014. Details will follow in a future issue of the Leader.
