FEMA Future Leaders Program
David Stanley, public assistance program specialist in the Baton Rouge Louisiana Recovery Office, is one of 20 applicants selected nationwide to be accepted into the FEMA Future Leaders Program. Over the next year, participants will spend time learning about the agency, building proficiency in leader development competencies, and focusing on their individual professional development. The program features high-profile speakers from FEMA and other government agencies, activities designed to practice new skills, and the opportunity to learn from each other as they build their professional network.
As part of their training, the group visits key locations every other month to gather greater understanding of FEMA and its mission. The FEMA Future Leaders group is scheduled to meet at the New Orleans Louisiana Recovery Office from Oct. 16 – 19, 2012, for one of seven in-person sessions. They will visit both the New Orleans and Baton Rouge offices, getting an overall review of the program and setting goals and objectives for the next year. Participants are scheduled to meet with senior leaders within the agency, state and local partners, members of Congress and military personnel to increase their understanding of FEMA’s role in emergency management and homeland security.
Each participant is also required to complete either a 90-day rotational assignment or individual project that gives them the chance to expand their skill set and learn more about leadership. Congratulations to David Stanley for pursuing this great opportunity to learn about leadership within the agency, while developing proficiency in leader competencies.
