Registration Now Open for February 3 Board Networking Fair

The Multicultural Leadership Program (MCLP) invites local non-profit organizations to register for the Board Networking Fair to be held Saturday, February 3, 2018 from 12:00 – 1:00 pm at the COUNTRY Financial IAA Building, 1701 N. Towanda Avenue in Bloomington.

During the fair, nonprofit organizations will have the opportunity to speak with up to 25 current MCLP participants who will graduate from the rigorous program in April.  Class participants are professionals who live or work in McLean County, and have been honing their leadership skills through semi-monthly learning events, individual mentorship, and team project work for local nonprofits.

MCLP’s mission is to develop leaders to engage the power of diverse perspectives to improve our world.  The MCLP curriculum is built around the concepts of Servant Leadership (a collaborative leadership approach), self-awareness and growth as a leader, the development of authentic relationships, fostering diversity inclusion, and making a positive impact.

Kristin Manzi, MCLP Community Involvement Co-chair says, “This is a great opportunity for nonprofits to meet the class of 2018, share their mission, and come away with future board members or volunteers.  MCLP Alumni have so much to offer the McLean County Community, and they realize that board leadership is a very beneficial way to get involved.”

Organizations interested in attending the February 3 MCLP Board Networking Fair should register at  Registration is required and must be received by noon on Monday, January 29, 2018.  

Immediately following the board networking fair, MCLP will offer a brief informational session for organizations wishing to submit a proposal for the MCLP Class of 2019 project teams.  (Class of 2019 project proposals will be due in late spring 2018.  Teams will work on projects between September 2018 and March 2019.)
