The Illawarra Connection is calling for expressions of interest in two prestigious development opportunities for members or their employees.
At the June dinner deputy president Graham Lancaster said the Leadership Illawarra Program was presently looking for 16 participants. It is a joint venture of RDA Illawarra, the Sydney Business School and TIC.
“Many of you will already have received a letter inviting you to nominate a suitable member of staff for the next cohort,” Mr Lancaster said.
“The program is based around four themes. Challenges for the Illawarra, governance and ethics, leadership, and community engagement/social responsibility. The program takes place over a two-year period. Participation..is open to all, however I am pleased to announce on behalf of the board that we are offering a scholarship to a TIC member or a nominated member of their staff. Applications will close on Friday July 29.”
RDA Illawarra’s Karen Bain is the contact point for member organisations.
Meanwhile applications open after the August 3 meeting for an MBA Scholarship awarded by the Sydney Business School to a member of TIC or one of their staff.
Applicants must already be accepted into the relevant MBA program for commencement in 2017.
