The first 2013 Spanish Leadership I Program was held last week at the William W. Winpisinger Center in Hollywood, MD.

All members expressed great appreciation to the IAM for providing their curriculum in their native language.

“This program has opened my eyes to the importance of educating my fellow co-workers,” said one member. “I learned about the founding of the IAM, its ethics, and the path our founding fathers created for us. If the members and shop stewards are educated on how we can all work together, then it’s a win-win situation for all.”

The next Spanish Leadership I is scheduled for the week of July 7– 10. The enrollment cutoff date for the July Leadership I Program is June 20, 2013. Space is limited and members should act now to secure enrollment.  Please note that enrollments in any of the Spanish Leadership classes do not count against your Lodge’s regular leadership school allotments.  Click here to download enrollment forms in either Spanish or English directly from the Winpisinger Center’s website.

While all classroom instruction, books and materials are in Spanish, the content is identical to the material used in the English leadership programs.  Spanish-speaking members who have completed Leadership I in English are welcome to enroll in the next program in the leadership series in Spanish.
