For Our Future – Regional Forestry Collaborative Leadership Program
1st November 2017
Developing tomorrow’s leaders – people with the knowledge and skills to collaboratively drive the future – is a longstanding goal of the Australian forest and wood products industry. For Our Future, the Regional Forestry Collaborative Leadership Program, addresses this by offering professional-level leadership development to industry participants.
Structured around four four-day regional workshops in Mt Gambier, Tumut, Bunbury and Gympie (or surrounds), followed by a combined national five-day workshop in Melbourne, the program will be delivered by a consortium comprising the Australian Rural Leadership Foundation, Leadership Victoria and polykala.
It is hoped to have to have 12 participants in each region (48 in total) enrolled in the pilot program which will run from February to June 2018.
Participants will be expected to attend nine workshop days, plus deliver pre-work and group projects. This significant commitment of individual and employer time reflects the value and stature of the program and its anticipated outcomes.
To minimise barriers to participation, there is a nominal fee of $1,000 per participant, plus personal travel costs. All other costs will be borne by FWPA.
