Leadership Initiative
Alabama AER Leadership Training Initiative

The AER Leadership Training Initiative is an effort to attract and develop future leaders for the Alabama AER Chapter. The first AER Leadership Training Initiative was held April 17-18, 2008 at the Heritage Trails Conference Center.

The second AER Leadership Training Initiative was held May 29-30, 2014 at the Alabama 4-H Center in Columbiana, AL.

Both trainings consisted of two half-day sessions that included participation in an AER Board meeting. Training activities included a presentation and discussion of effective leadership, interactive group activities with emphasis on group challenges, team building and discussion of AER organizational and business topics and other information important to AER leadership roles. Thanks to Susan Harrell and Joe Helm for coordinating the 2014 Leadership Initiative.
