Today, the National Conservation Foundation (NCF) announced names of the seven participants selected to participate in the third cohort of the Next Generation Leadership Institute (NGLI).
NGLI was launched in August of 2019 as a year-long program to advance conservation leadership. Created in response to a high demand for leadership instruction for conservation district leaders facing the challenges of a changing world, NGLI was established to provide conservation professionals with the tools to become national leaders through personal, civic, and organizational leadership development.
The 2023 cohort participants include:
- Daryl Donohue – Kansas
- Eric Hanson – South Dakota
- Craig Myers – North Carolina
- Angela Rosol – Iowa
- Dawn Salcito – Arizona
- Donald Stephens – Oklahoma
- Michael Stewart – South Carolina
NGLI participants will meet for training sessions throughout the year, with a capstone session at the 2024 National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD) Annual Meeting in San Diego, CA. NGLI’s curriculum will equip leaders with skills and resources related to personal, civic, and organizational leadership development.
This comprehensive training will help participants prepare to meet the future needs of natural resources management, helping them to increase their capacity to navigate and manage complex conservation challenges – both current and future – at the national level.
The cohort will convene for their first session at the 2023 NACD Annual Meeting from February 11-15, 2022 in New Orleans, LA. Visit the NCF website for more information about the 2023 cohort.
