Blandin leadership alum applies learning to community challenge

sprig by Posted in Rural Capacity Building

In a recent column, Dana Melius, a 1998 BCLP graduate from Sibley County, used a key principle from training to understand and talk about an issue in his community.

“I’m not taking sides on this one. Bust if there’s one thing I took away from previous training in the Blandin Foundation Community Leadership Program was the importance of both ‘process and product.’ Basically, both are equally important.”

He goes on to discuss a timely community issue involving the closure of a golf course. Read his column here.
