[Please pass to all your members ASAP. Thanks. CB]
Sunshine District Leadership Academy 2011 is just around the corner!
Our faculty is lined up. The hotel is set
[Altamonte Springs Hilton where we have conducted
previous seminars]. Things are looking good and
we hope the venue change will make it easier for
more people to attend. Pat Haley, Leadership
Academy Dean, has completed the final agenda.
It's time to get the students enrolled!
By now, your Chapter elections are over and your
new Board members are chomping at the bit for
Installation and moving forward. To make that
energy and effort go as far as possible, one more
element is necessary - Leadership Academy enrollment and attendance.
The Leadership Academy idea isn't new in
Barbershop. Those of you who've been in the
Society for more than a couple years remember the
old format we called COTS. Leadership Academy
brings the concept into the twenty-first century.
Leadership Academy is where you develop and hone
your skills for the job to which you've just been
elected or perfect them if you're continuing in office.
It's time to register your Chapter Board members
for the next Leadership Academy, January 8 & 9,
2011, at the Altamonte Springs Hilton in
Altamonte Springs [Orlando Metro area]. This is a
legitimate Chapter expense that should be in
every Chapter's operating budget each year. Not
only should your Chapter be sending your new
Board members to the Leadership Academy but you
should also be sending anyone else in your
Chapter who's interested in becoming a Chapter
officer in the future. It's well worth the
investment in the short and long terms.
Here's the basic information about this year's
Leadership Academy from the District web site:

Saturday; as well as hors doeuvres at the
