Heartland Center is partnering with the Sherwood Foundation to provide scholarships for rural Nebraska community leadership teams to attend this year’s institute. Teams of two or more leaders from rural Nebraska communities will receive first priority consideration. Our partnership with the Sherwood Foundation will result in a registration fee of only $150.00 per Nebraska rural community team member for this three-day hands-on training program, compared to the regular fee of $450.00 per person.
Registrations may fill up quickly, and capacity is limited by the training facilities at Lied Lodge. To guarantee availability, call 800-546-5433 by September 22 and ask for the Heartland Center rate. Click on the links to get more information about the institute and to register.
