Emerging Leaders is a program that KAEOPP and SAEOPP both run individually to develop new leaders for their organizations. KAEOPP hosts an Emerging Leaders program training at their Fall Conference, and SAEOPP hosts their Emerging Leaders program at their Spring Conference. These are separate trainings, but individuals participating in the state training are encouraged to participate at the regional training.
If you wish to be a part of Emerging Leaders you must be a KAEOPP member with a desire to work on committees, chair committees or hold elected offices. The commitment is a two year agreement to follow through with the training and it is the hope of the organization that you will become actively involved in committees and elected positions once you are trained.
Training is usually held as a pre-conference activity for half a day prior to the fall KAEOPP conference. The Emerging Leaders training is free to attend, but all expenses of hotel and food are the responsibility of the attendee, who should also be registered for the conference.
If you are interested in this opportunity, discuss it with your supervisor and then contact a board member or go to the Committees page and to find the chair of Emerging Leaders committee for you to contact.
Application and more information about KAEOPP's Emerging Leaders program can always be found on the Fall Conference page as an attachment.
