Emerging Community Leaders
Welcome to Emerging Community Leaders. We are looking for extraordinary people. We are building a group of young leaders in our community. The cause is important, the training is invaluable and the seats are limited.
Each year, a class of Emerging Community Leaders (ECL) members will take part in this growing group of emerging leaders in our community. We hope you will be one of those people. There is no cost to attend this year-long program. You are making a commitment to give of your time, talent and treasure beyond your current workplace environment with a goal of becoming a future leader of Champaign County.
The class consists of four seminars, various volunteering and social events, and a team project.
