This year we're proud to host our friends from the
Cardinal, Pioneer, & Seneca Land Districts
Leadership Academy is a weekend training seminar for chapter leadership. Courses are offered for chapter officers, musical leadership, and future leaders, as well as a plethora of elective courses on non-leadership-centered topics like music education, vocal pedagogy, performance skills, and more. It's a great opportunity for those interested in leadership to hear new concepts, network, get some essential leadership tools, get in some singing, and experience some solid fellowship. LeadAc is done early in the year so chapter leadership can go back to their chapters energized and full of new ideas.
