Program Applications

Community and industry groups are encouraged to nominate a member to undertake this valuable learning journey. Participation will help strengthen the organisation and provide access to influential networks across the region.

The Northern Mallee Leaders Program (NMLP) aims to create leaders for vibrant and sustainable communities across the Sunraysia region by;

  • Offering potential and emerging leaders an intensive annual program which explores the major issues and opportunities within our region
  • Enabling participants to interact with, and learn from, existing leaders
  • Enhancing participants’ leadership skills and developing region wide networks
  • Inspiring participants to take on leadership opportunities in their communities
  • Empowering and encouraging participants to help shape their community
  • Providing participants with the skills, knowledge and networks to make a difference

Each year up to 24 participants are accepted, with the aim of reflecting the diversity of the communities living and working within our region – primary industries, business, government and community.

The program runs for a period of nine months each year between February and November and comprises 24 program days (an average of two days per month).

Each program day is held in a different part of the region effectively showcasing the region, while field trips to Canberra and Melbourne add another valuable dimension to this unique experience.
