Given the challenges facing our land and our environment, there has never been a more important time to invest in the education and development of future conservation leaders.

The Next Generation Leadership Institute (NGLI) was officially launched in 2019, and provides conservation district leaders with the tools to become national leaders through personal, civic and organizational leadership development. The program was created in response to a high demand for leadership instruction for conservation district leaders facing the challenges of a changing world.

The NGLI program consists of monthly training and development opportunities for conservation leaders including:

  • Advocacy and Public Policy
  • Effective Communication
  • Leadership Style
  • Media Training
  • Conflict Management
  • Teambuilding and Delegation
  • Partnerships (National Conservation Planning Partnership)

This year-long training equips the cohort with the skills needed to build a better tomorrow!
