Applications Now Open for the 2019 Leadership Program

In an effort to enhance the leadership skills of its members, ODTUG is pleased to announce its sixth ODTUG Leadership Program!

This nine-month program will cover topics such as leadership styles, effective communication, mentoring, team building, goal setting, and accountability.

The submitted applications will be evaluated, and based on those applications as well as follow-up interviews, a small group will be chosen for the class. There is no application fee for the Leadership Program—it costs nothing to apply. However, if you are accepted into the program, you must then become a full, dues-paying ODTUG member.

The 2019 Leadership Program application is now open! Applications are due on Thursday, August 16, 2018. To apply, please fill out this form.
