What is Leadership Academy?

The Region VIII Leadership Academy is a unique opportunity to educate yourself about management topics, leadership skills and all things ASCLS.  

Participants in the Academy will be enrolled in a one-year program that will develop their leadership skills, strengthen their knowledge and understanding about ASCLS and allow them to make a valuable contribution to ASCLS. Candidates can self-nominate or be nominated by a co-worker, fellow ASCLS member, supervisor, etc. 

We are looking for motivated candidates to enroll now!
