Applications are being accepted for the Multi Cultural Leadership Program (MCLP) for the class of 2012. Those wishing to learn more about the program are invited to a recruitment reception on Saturday, March 5, at 7:45 a.m. at Country Financial (entrance #4), 1701 N. Towanda Ave. in Bloomington.

MCLP is an intense professional development curriculum that provides a framework to those with an interest and potential to step into leadership roles within our communities. There are innumerable leaders among us of all ages, cultures and walks of life. MCLP
focuses on cultivating emerging leaders to strengthen and support our vital and complex community. Emerging leaders are not defined by age, but by both intent and action.

Each class is composed of roughly 25 individuals who meet for bi-weekly
sessions spread over eight months, August through April of the following year. Class participants are chosen on the basis of their demonstrated commitment to community issues, desire to learn and intent to contribute to the community at large. Participants meet on a Saturday and a Thursday evening each month.
