Region VIII Leadership Academy


Shaping Our Future…One Intern at a Time

The Region VIII Leadership Academy is a unique opportunity to educate yourself about management topics, leadership skills and all things ASCLS.  We are looking for motivated candidates to enroll now!

  • Do you have a desire to further develop your leadership skills?
  • Has your leadership potential been recognized by constituent society officers, board members or others in leadership roles?
  • Have you demonstrated leadership potential by participating in leadership activities within constituent society organizations?

If you answered YES to any of these questions and you are currently a member of ASCLS, we want YOU!

The Region VIII Leadership Academy is a powerful program that will strengthen our society and the individuals that participate. 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.
