Alpine lead­ers visit Myrtle­ford

Myrtleford Times - - News -

GAIN­ING KNOWL­EDGE: Mem­bers of this year’s Alpine Val­leys Com­mu­nity Lead­er­ship Pro­gram were in Myrtle­ford re­cently as part of their fort­nightly vis­its to lo­cal towns.

COM­MU­NITY lead­ers from across the re­gion met in Myrtle­ford last month as part of the Alpine Val­leys Com­mu­nity Lead­er­ship Pro­gram (AVCLP).

The AVCLP is one of 10 funded com­mu­nity lead­er­ship ini­tia­tives in Vic­to­ria that each year se­lects a di­verse group of up to 25 as­pir­ing lead­ers to em­bark on a 10-month in­ten­sive ex­pe­ri­en­tial learn­ing pro­gram.

The group is made up of peo­ple from across the re­gion in­clud­ing the Alpine Shire, Mans­field, Cor­ry­ong and the Bor­der.

The se­lected mem­bers tour the whole North East learn­ing about the pri­or­i­ties and eco­nomic driv­ers of each town and how they can con­trib­ute to or im­ple­ment pos­i­tive change for their com­mu­ni­ties.

As part of their fort­nightly vis­its of each town­ship, the lead­ers last week had a skills day spon­sored by Parks Vic­to­ria at the Ablett Pav­il­ion in Myrtle­ford.

AVCLP pro­gram co-or­di­na­tor Kar­lie Lang­don said the ses­sion which fea­tured a guest speaker fo­cussed on fun­da­men­tal lead­er­ship skills such as so­cial me­dia, net­work­ing, pub­lic speak­ing and time man­age­ment.

“Our mem­bers de­velop per­sonal lead­er­ship skills, a broad knowl­edge of the re­gion and a large net­work of man­age­ment level con­tacts,” Ms Lang­don said.
