A three-day program professional development program for young leaders in public service will be held at the Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M University on May 19-21, 2015.

Designed for professionals in the nonprofit sector, education, or state and local government who want to improve their leadership skills, the three-day, in-residence program includes leadership self-assessment, professional development planning, and dynamic workshops. The program can also be helpful to graduate students who plan careers in the nonprofit or educational sectors, or those currently working in other fields but considering or making a transition into nonprofit or public sector management.

The three-day seminar will include more than 20 hours of workshops and training on a range of leadership topics offered by the Bush School’s faculty and staff.  Participants will create a personalized professional development plan and receive a leadership and personality assessment. They will gain management and leadership skills, and expand their professional network. 

The program begins Tuesday, May 19 at 1 p.m., and concludes Thursday May 21.  Most meals are included in the $595 program fee.  Conference rates are available at local hotels.

The registration deadline for the program is April 24. Additional details, contact information, as well as the program application can be found on the Bush School’s website at
