At this time of the year we all take stock of the previous year and make our plans for the new one.  The Leaders School is no different. To help us address current and future challenges, we added a few new members to the School Leadership Team as we ramp up for some big work in 2020 and beyond. The team met in November, reviewed (and sometimes debated) each piece of Advisor, Staff,and Leader feedback given. Please accept our gratitude for the thoughtful suggestions and recommendations provided.  As you can see from the picture below, we also managed to  have a little fun.

We are glad to know more clubs are forming and existing clubs are growing.  We are blessed that this growth results in higher demand for BRLS.  Consistent with previous years schools, a waiting list is sure to happen quickly. To help ensure all are prepared for the upcoming registration process. we’re adding a series of advisor webinars  in February 

Top of mind in preparing for the future is the second week of BRLS.  Please watch this newsletter and our social media for announcements regarding the dates for the second week of BRLS along with new attendance standards for local clubs.
