Openings Still Available for NACDA's Management/Leadership Institute

CLEVELAND - Openings still remain for NACDA's increasingly popular Management/Leadership Institute. The program, which includes three levels, will be held June 13-16 at the Little and Grand America Hotels in Salt Lake City, Utah following NACDA's 36th Annual Convention.

Levels I and II, presented by Franklin Covey, include four separate courses with 14 hours of instructions. These are -- Building Trust - The Key to High Performance; Presentation Advantage; Meeting Advantage; and Getting to Synergy. Course material includes an outline, workbook and reference book; and, for Presentation and Meeting Advantage, a content disk.

The Advanced Level will include Current Communication Applications; Current Issues in Athletics; and Lessons for Leaders. Instructors include Sue Castorino and Randy Minkoff of the Speaking Specialists; Jack Lengyel, NACDA Past President and AD at Navy; Mike Lude, NACDA Past President and retired AD at Washington; and Homer Rice, NACDA Past President, adjunct professor and retired AD at Georgia Tech. Course material includes a copy of Lessons for Leaders by Homer Rice.

The Institute is open to all NACDA members. Registration is $300.

Division III Minority Program Available

Through a partnership with NACDA and the NCAA Division III, 24 Division III ethnic minority males will receive a scholarship worth up to $1,000 to attend the Management/Leadership Institute. Three hundred dollars will be applied to the registration fee, while the remainder (up to $700) can be applied to travel (coach class airfare or mileage reimbursement), accommodations (maximum of three nights) and/or meals for the Institute. Recipients may include athletics department staff, coaches and/or interns; and there is no limit to the number of recipients from an institution.

Recipients will receive the scholarship annually, for up to three years, to complete the Institute, provided they remain in Division III. A similar opportunity is available for minority women through the NACWAA/HERS program operated by NACWAA (jalley@nacwaa.com - 910/793-8244).

There are a limited number of these scholarships still available.
