Emerging Leaders Pilot Program to Start at 2024 Conference
PLSO is introducing the Emerging Leaders Practicum starting at the 2024 Conference. This program supports our strategic plan to Improve Leadership (Goal 3) within our organization. It is a chapter-sponsored mentorship practicum for the emerging leaders identified by your Chapter. The Emerging Leaders practicum falls under the Leadership Academy program developed, implemented, and managed by the Practices Committee.
General Overview: The Emerging Leaders program is a chapter-sponsored mentorship practicum for the emerging leaders identified in your Chapter. The Emerging Leaders practicum falls under the Leadership Academy program developed, implemented, and managed by the Practices Committee.
Framework: The general practicum framework includes an understanding of the past (Our history) and answers the question, "Who are we?"; the present (Our Practices) and answers the question, "What is expected?"; and the future (Our Vision) and answers the question, "How do we get there?"
By the end of the practicum, the Emerging Leader will know or be familiar with six areas of professional competencies:
When: January 17-19, 2024, and ending at the next PLSO Conference in 2025
Where: The first meeting will be at the PLSO Conference. Subsequent sessions will be held monthly via BlueJeans and during Chapter meetings and determined between the Mentor and Mentee.
Who: PLSO members identified as Emerging Leaders within your Chapter. Oversight is by the Chapter President and is supported by the PLSO Practices Committee.
Cost: Your time and effort. There may be nominal fees for materials if needed. The successful candidate will also receive free admission to the 2024 and 2025 conferences.
