Leadership Development

We offer a variety of leadership roles, resources, and approaches to equip mothers and daughters as leaders.  Working with a group to accomplish common goals is incredibly rewarding, and also develops leadership skills as you work alongside others. Members have opportunities to engage in experiences that build essential skills, such as confidence, consensus and team building, event planning, conflict resolution and parliamentary procedure.  These skills help you to grow as a leader whether you are a mother or daughter.

There are a variety of leadership roles available to mothers and daughters in our Chapter.  Leadership roles for mothers include serving on the Chapter Board, as a philanthropy partner liaison, working directly with a grade of young women, as a committee chair, or committee member.  Leadership roles available to daughters include serving as a class officer, committee chair and committee member.

We work with members to find the right job for you at the right time.  In addition, we offer job specific training for most leadership roles.  Leadership training for members is provided in the Chapter through one-on-one meetings, peer interaction, on-demand resources, and occasional workshops.  In addition, there is training available at the District and National level as your area of responsibility increases.

In 2016 our Chapter initiated a program we called “Ticktockers: Ready, Set, Lead” as an additional way to grow our daughters into stronger leaders.  This approach was modeled after initiatives successfully used in other Chapters.  Two classes are empowered to create a vision for an event attended by the entire chapter, and then have responsibility to work together to plan the event.  These young women work with a group of mothers who mentor and empower them through this process. The results have been amazing!  Our young women have created fresh, engaging events which appeal to mothers and daughters.  We have witnessed young women becoming empowered, creative, responsible leaders and team Members.
