Class X, the 10th class of the SDARL 18-month leadership program, will begin on November 9, 2018.
“It’s not only what you learn about the state, but what you learn about yourself and the potential that you can be – that you have in the future. It really means a lot to me.”
“I was asked to apply for the state FSA committee, and I was appointed by the White House and (U.S. Secretary of Agriculture) Sonny Perdue, which is huge, and that wouldn’t have happened without SDARL.”
Class X members meet each other as a class for the first time. Scheduled speakers include SDARL Board of Directors President Nate Franzen, recently-elected political figures, the SDARL Executive Director and CEO, a panel of alumni to answer questions, and there will be a reception with SDARL alumni. Class members will learn about individual strengths during an assessment Analysis-Strength Deployment Inventory, and will learn the logistics of the 18-month program.
Our alumni are the most dedicated servant leaders in the state. Hear them talk about their SDARL experience.
We’re accepting names of individuals interested in our next leadership class. Send us your email address and we’ll include you in our mailing list. You’ll get to know SDARL and be invited to upcoming events!
