ACS Leadership Development System™ Grants

The Committee on Local Section Activities (LSAC) is pleased to offer a limited number of grants to local sections that wish to host ACS Leadership Development System™ courses in 2014.  This partnership between the ACS Leadership Advisory Board (LAB) and LSAC will allow your local section to provide a tangible member benefit to your local section members at no charge.

Grant Details:

  • A limited number of grants (up to $3,000) are available to local sections that wish to host an ACS Leadership Development System™ course in 2014.
  • Upon grant approval, eligible local sections will be awarded $1,800 to cover the registration fees ($150pp) for the first 12 participants that register for the course.
  • Additional grant monies up to $1,200 will be awarded to local sections to offer additional scholarships.

Local sections may choose to host the following courses:

  • Engaging Colleagues in Dialogue
  • Engaging and Motivating Volunteers
  • Fostering Innovation
  • Coaching and Feedback
  • Collaborating Across Boundaries
  • Leading Change
  • Leading Without Authority

Local sections must submit a grant application by August 1, 2014. Grant funds are limited and will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.

All courses are facilitated by an ACS member that has been trained and certified to teach the course. ACS provides all course materials, a computer and projector, and will assist in promoting the course to the members in your section. Local sections are responsible for reserving a meeting room (with a screen and flipcharts) providing a light snack for attendees and assisting with course promotion on their website, mailings and meeting announcements.

ACS Leadership Development System® courses provide participants with an opportunity to learn essential skills that will strengthen their competitive edge in today's global economy. For more information about these courses and course scholarships please visit our webpage or contact us via email.
