The University of Maine Hutchinson Center is once again sending out the call for Midcoast area leaders to be nominated for Class 5 of the Midcoast Leasdership Academy (MLA) to start in September. Read what graduates of the program have to say by calling for a copy of the brochure and other program materials.

The MLA program pairs emerging leaders with established community leaders to sharpen skills, build new ones and form the relationships necessary to develop the essential networking skills that directly contribute to community development. Monthly sessions will begin in September and be conducted at various locations in Knox and Waldo counties until the program’s completion and graduation in June 2013. The deadline for accepting applications is Sunday, July 15.
