Applications are now being taken for Leadership Aberdeen 2023. Leadership Aberdeen is a comprehensive leadership training program that provides participants with the opportunity to sharpen their skills, share their experiences, and make life-long connections with fellow participants. Participants will follow a 12-week curriculum which focuses on growing their individual skills by focusing on leadership attributes. The class also gains broader knowledge of the businesses, opportunities and challenges in our community through tours of local businesses and hearing from local leaders on company philosophies, goals, and success stories. Plus the class gives back to the community by facilitating a local project or event that will have a positive impact on the Aberdeen community.
This program is made possible with the help of the 2023 Leadership Aberdeen business partners: 3M Company of Aberdeen, Agtegra, Avera St. Luke’s, Dacotah Bank, Demkota Ranch Beef, Glacial Lakes Energy LLC, Northern State University, and Presentation College.
