The Austin Young Chamber of Commerce (AYC) and the University of Texas Army ROTC Department have partnered to develop a leadership course for young professionals and Senior ROTC Cadets to inspire students and young professionals in their efforts to address the challenges of this, and future generations. The leadership course will run through the Spring 2012 semester, in a series of seven classes followed by a luncheon with a featured speaker.
The purpose of the leadership series is to provide UT Cadets and AYC members the opportunity to learn first-hand from today’s foremost business and military officials about the principles of leadership that transcend industries, ethnicities, age groups and business models. Every first and third Thursday of the month, select AYC members will be invited to join Lt. Colonel Joseph Kopser’s morning ROTC leadership course, which will be followed by an on-campus luncheon with a prominent business leader or government official.
AYC members are encouraged apply through the short application form below. Those accepted into the program will attend at no cost, which is made possible by our program sponsor, Texas Gas Service. If you have any questions, you can contact AYC’s Executive Director Melanie Plummer at email@example.com.
Your application will be reviewed by a diverse and anonymous selection committee. Applicants will be notified of their application status no later than January 15, 2012.
Below is a schedule of the Leadership Series. By applying to the program, you are committing to attend at least six luncheons (11:30 am – 1:00 pm) and a minimum of five ROTC Leadership Courses (9:30 am – 11:00 am). If your employer requires program confirmation in order to attend, AYC will provide an acceptance letter with an overview of the course.
