The Spanish Leadership Working Group met recently at the Winpisinger Center to prepare for the IAM’s 2010 Spanish Leadership programs. Among the group’s tasks was to finalize revisions to the curriculum for the Spanish Advanced Leadership pilot program, which will debut this year in a class scheduled for September 26 – October 1.

“We are very excited to offer this next step for our Spanish-speaking members,” said Chris Wagoner, Director of the Winpisinger Center.

Spaces are available for all three Spanish Leadership programs, which cover the same subjects included in the regular Leadership programs but with all classroom instruction and materials in Spanish. Enrollments in the Spanish programs do not count against a lodge’s regular Leadership program allotment.
