Black Diamond Selected to Join “Becoming a Community Leader”

An exciting announcement will be made this morning at 10:00 am at the Sheep River Library by Black Diamond’s Mayor, Sharlene Brown.

If you would like to see an increase in volunteerism, greater community ownership and pride, increased business profitability, improved performance for yourself and those around you and the strengthening of your community’s resiliency, then you should be attending this announcement about a great new program that will be available to our community.

The BECOMING A COMMUNITY BUILDER initiative has been launched to grow Community Leadership Capacity in Rural Alberta.

What is Community Leadership Capacity? Leadership excellence of both formal and informal leaders spanning all sectors, within all silos, of all stakeholder groups, at all levels of a Community.

The initiative is designed and facilitated by IAN HILL, award winning Change Agent, Business Leader and one of North America’s foremost Community Builders. In 2012, the program was beta-tested in partnership with the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo, engaging 1053 citizens with outstanding results.

The Gazette will bring you more information on this program after the official announcement and details have been  released.
