(STATEHOUSE) July 12, 2007 - The State Legislative Leaders Foundation (SLLF) has recognized Representative Randy Borror (R-Ft. Wayne) for his leadership ability by selecting him to attend the 2007 Emerging Leaders Program. Rep. Borror was chosen out of hundreds of state lawmakers nationwide to be one of fifty participants. The program is a three day event that will unite and challenge legislators from around the country who show exceptional leadership ability to develop their potential.
The Emerging Leaders Program is an educational opportunity, which focuses on critical public policy issues and aspects of legislative leadership. Participants will be challenged to evolve their leadership skills through interactive curriculum promoting learning and idea exchanges. The vigorous workshop will require participants to attend classes, participate in discussions and analyze leadership styles, enabling them to more effectively initiate action and make a difference.
"I am honored to be recognized as a leader and privileged to be attending such a prestigious event," said Rep. Borror. "Participating in this program will be an enlightening and rewarding experience that will expand my knowledge of leadership and public policy, allowing me to better represent my constituents."
The Emerging Leaders Program is an educational program of the SLLF and is sponsored by the Darden School of Business at the University of Virginia. Facility members from the Darden School along with guest contributors will teach the program, providing participants with practical and scholarly instruction. The event will take place July 16-19 at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville.
To participate in the Emerging Leaders Program, lawmakers must be nominated by a leader of their state legislator such as the Speaker of the House, Senate President or a minority leader. Nominees must then complete an application, which is reviewed by a selection committee who chooses 50 participants out of the hundreds of applicants.
Representative Borror represents House District 84, which includes portions of Allen County, including the city of Fort Wayne.
