Delegate Jeff Frederick was nominated by the legislative leaders in the House of Delegates and chosen by the Selection Committee to participate in the 2008 Emerging Political Leaders Program, sponsored by the State Legislative Leaders Foundation.
The program is scheduled for July 14-17, 2008, at the University of Virginia, Darden School of Business. Dr. Edward Freeman and faculty from the Darden School and the State Legislative Leaders Foundation will lead classes covering an array of leadership topics. Program sessions help participants identify their strengths and weaknesses, understand the obligations and challenges of leadership, and develop skills and appreciation for effective and ethical leadership.
Delegate Frederick was one of fifty legislators selected nationwide to participate in this prestigious program. These legislators’ dedication to public service and their proven leadership qualities are what made their colleagues nominate them, and why they were chosen to participate.
According to Stephen G. Lakis, President of the State Legislative Leaders Foundation, “These legislators are the cream of the crop and will, in the near future, be taking on significant leadership responsibilities in their states. This program helps them prepare to take on the mantle of leadership and bear the responsibilities with the utmost effectiveness.” ###
