LEADS (Leadership Education And Development Seminar)
GFWC initiated the Leadership Education and Development Seminar, LEADS, for the purpose of finding, training, and encouraging clubwomen from the grassroots level to pursue and accept leadership opportunities in their clubs, districts, and states. GFWC-NC LEADS was developed in 2002 to build upon GFWC’s goal of developing future leaders. It offers an annual LEADS award and seminar. Each district sponsors one member to represent them annually at the LEADS seminar. They receive a complimentary dinner, and one-half night’s accommodations, breakfast, and lunch at a designated location. District LEADS candidates will be given the opportunity to learn about GFWC, as well as receive specialized leadership training to share with her district and club.
One district LEADS representative will be chosen to represent North Carolina as the LEADS candidate and attend the GFWC LEADS training at the GFWC Annual Convention. GFWC does assist with some of the costs of attending this program at the GFWC convention. Participation is highly recommended!
