For the past 10 years ELP has been providing leadership training to
emerging and innovative environmental and social change leaders from
academia, business, government and non-profit sectors. Past
participants include Rev. Fletcher Harper of GreenFaith, Michelle
Knapick of the Dodge Foundation, Taneshia Laird of the Trenton
Downtown Association and Ben Spinelli, Former Executive Director of the
Office of Smart Growth for N.J.

Each year, ELP selects 15-20 individuals to participate in a series of
three retreats (totaling 11 days) which focus on the core competencies
of public leadership: working across difference, effective
communications, strategic partnerships and collaborations and high
engagement leadership. Fellows also complete a personal leadership
plan which provides them with a road map to achieve both their
personal and professional goals.

Applications for the 2010 Eastern Regional Network (NJ, NY, DE and
eastern PA) will be accepted until June 1. I am hopeful you will be
able to share this with your colleagues as well as your
greater network.  More information about our program, including
retreat dates can be found at
