Empowering Leaders - Shape Your Community

April 04, 2017

The significance and need for community engagement is an important factor at all levels, from civic organizations to community government.  Empowering Leaders wants to emphasize this message in their 2017 program, Shape Your Community. 

Shape Your Community has lined out seven sessions to support further exploration and understanding of community engagement and leadership.  The program officially started February 2017, with a panel featuring individuals sharing their experiences serving on a variety of Boards in Bowman, surrounding communities, and regionally.  March focused on working with multiple generations.

Each year, Empowering Leaders has one session that veers from a lunch hour gathering to an extended session providing in-depth learning and engagement.  Staying with the theme of “Shaping Your Community”, April’s program, Volunteer Engagement will provide tools to seek and manage volunteers as well as unexpected ways to be involved in your community and create partnerships.

In addition to the development opportunities throughout the year, Empowering Leaders is bringing Burgers in the Park to Bowman City Park once a month, May through September, for the 3rd consecutive year.  

Time Management, Marketing Your Organization, and a Book Club facilitated discussion rounds out the year’s programming for October, November and December.    

Empowering Leaders was created to provide continual development opportunities right in Bowman County.  It can be a great platform for integrating into the community by creating an opportunity to learn of ways to connect, build relationships, and become involved.
