November WeLEAD: Informal Community Leadership

WeLEAD is a women’s mentoring and leadership group initiated through Willmar’s Vision 2040 “Next Generation” task team. They work to empower all women to discover and maximize their unique talents, one leader at a time. 

Join WeLEAD for their next lunch & learn on November 15th, 2017 from Noon to 1pm at the MinnWest Technology Campus Life Science Auditorium in Willmar, MN.

The lunch & learn titled, "Informal Community Leadership," will consist of a panel of women; Darlene, Bratberg, Darlene Schroeder and Rachel Skretvedt. 

Are you JUST a volunteer? Are you the person who is just there to help for the day? Are you the person who thinks their time isn't as valuable as others who have titles? You couldn't be more wrong!

Come here from people who are great examples of being a leader in several different ways in our community. People who we sit in meetings with, who we go to church with, who grocery shop just like we do, and those who also love those pancakes at Frieda's Cafe!

Cost is $15 and includes lunch. Lunch is served at 11:45am. Registration is required by November 10th. Register at http://welead.willmarlakesarea2040.com.

Testimonials
From our community volunteers

“We are proud to be part of the Vision 2040 effort here at the community foundation because it aligns with our core mission to engage people, connect resources and build community. It was an easy choice to invest not only financial resources to support Vision 2040 but also to lend significat board and staff time to help drive this effort forward. It's transforming our communities for the future our residents dream about-using their ideas and energies to make good things happen organically in real time and for years to come-and we want to be part of making that possible!”

Sara Carlson, Willmar Area Community Foundation

“I'm honored to be part of Vision 2040 and the team that is forging the future of the Willmar Lakes Area community. We are a strong vibrant community that works hard and works together through partnerships and collaborative efforts. This spark of leadership for this is caused by people willing to risk failure to reach for success. We have seen there's no limit to what a group can do if the individuals don't care who gets the credit.”

Ken Warner, Willmar Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce

I made connections with community members and found many common visions.  I have begun to get more active in the community due to the connections.
