Application materials now are available for the District Leadership Academy Class of 2024.   
Club board members or committee chairs, Presidents Nominee, Presidents-Elect, District Assistant Governors and committee chairs, members of District committees - anyone who aspires to serve as a club or district leader - are encouraged to enroll in this outstanding educational program.  The DLA is a seven-month series of courses that covers RI Cornerstone Knowledge, Membership, Public Image, Youth Service, Organization, Fundraising, Grants, and The Rotary Foundation.
Courses are up to a month long, and includes reviewing resources, discussions, written assignments, and a final exam, all done online through Rotary's Learning Center or via the Canvas Learning Management System used by many colleges and universities. 
With limited exceptions, each topic must be completed during the period in which that particular course is “live”, but the student fits the coursework into their schedule.  
Want to learn more?  We're holding introductory / informational Zoom sessions on at 7PM on Monday, October 9th and Thursday, October 12th.  Pick one that’s convenient for you.  We’ll outline the program, talk about the Canvas learning platform, and answer your questions, and you can meet those that have already enrolled. Contact gov.lyle@rotary6440.org for the Zoom link. 
All documents required to be completed for Academy admission can be downloaded from this webpage.  The deadline for submitting all completed documents and the enrollment fee is October 15, 2023.  The “academic year” officially begins on October 16, although there is a very short Pre-course beforehand to prepare students to work through Canvas.
Please contact Academy Dean PDG Lyle Staab at gov.lyle@rotary6440.org  with any questions you may have about District 6440 Leadership Academy 2024.
