The Jim Ingram Community Leadership Institute

The Jim Ingram CLI group is a two year program designed to develop community leadership skills and to enhance personal and professional growth. The program consists of one year of training and one year of community reinvestment.

There are three components to the overall program.

  • Community Orientation:

    Program sessions address topics such as economic and community development, education, health care, and local government. Various sites in the community will be toured.

  • Enhancing Leadership Skills:

    Leadership skills will be addressed at all sessions. Skill building exercises include personal development assessment, visioning and strategic planning, speaker and presentation training, effective communication techniques, and consensus building.

  • Community Leadership Reinvestment (CLR):

    The program requires one year of institute training and one year of community leadership reinvestment. Participants reinvest what they have learned during institute training to a non-profit organization or a defined community need.
