2022 Next Generation Leadership Institute Application – Now open!

This is a program of the National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD) and the National Conservation Foundation (NCF). The goal of the Next Generation Leadership Institute (NGLI) is to equip conservation district leaders with the tools to become national leaders through personal, civic and organizational leadership development. This comprehensive training will help participants rise to meet the future needs of natural resources management, helping them to increase their capacity to navigate and manage complex conservation challenges – both current and future – at the local, state, and national level. Upon completion of the program, participants will fulfill their potential to be the trusted voice of locally-led conservation efforts from the local to the national level.

Currently-appointed conservation district officials are eligible to apply, as well as district officials with current or potential for a statewide leadership position. All applicants must be committed to future conservation district service and must submit letters of support from their local conservation district and their state or territory association.

Applications must be received by Friday, September 24, 2021 at 11:59 Eastern.

You can find the application and more information on the NGLI webpage:
