10 months later. . .

and i've been rethinking the rethink. we had a little hiatus due to some conflicting opinions on the reason behind the mock oil spill clean up last year and well. . . i let it take the wind right out of my sails.

but, alas, i cannot stay away. too much is going on.

music, art, culture.


restructuring history

and now. . . Leadership Russellville.

stay tuned to see how this next chapter develops.

for those of you not in the know. . . Leadership Russellville is:
and i quote ". . . an annual program of the Russellville Area Chamber of Commerce designed to identify, educate and motivate potential leaders to become involved in the future of our community. It is aimed at developing a pool of well-informed and well-motivated men and women qualified to assume present and future leadership roles in the Russellville area."

wow. pretty cool.

why do we need L.R. you ask?
well, and again i quote " the russellville are is one of the major growth areas of Arkansas. New growth - both in terms of population and economy - means new problems, major new solutions to these problems and demands the involvement of informed and caring citizens. LEADERSHIP RUSSELLVILLE will offer informative learning opportunities in an atmosphere that stimulates (not quoting here. . . but hey, who doesn't like a little stimulation every now and again??? end of not quoting and back to quoting) participants to use both new and proven tools to meet the challenges of today and tomorrow."

vague? maybe. . . but at least it leaves it open to interpretation and creativity. . . i hope!

so what is this leadership rsvl program anyway?
again with the quoting, but why reinvent the wheel when the chamber has so diligently written this (and thought it through) already. . . really. . .not plagarizing when i say i'm quoting their application packet, right? anyway, "the program consists of approximately fourteen sessions that include a kick-off retreat and orientation beginning in October 2011 (or later if you find this in the future. . . whoah). Sessions start in October and end in June. Included are programs on government, education, quality of life, healthcare, industrial development, non-profit agencies, team-building and leadership training." phew. that's a lot.

who can apply?
pretty much anyone. except if your running for office. oh yeah, and anyone who can pay the application fee. thank you Azzore!
