  •  Brand new theme!

    Tuesday, Jun. 26, 2012

    We are excited to introduce our sixth theme for the CBL Leadership program!

    Leadership Requires Engagement - engaging life fully for the common good.

    Leaders develop and dedicate their talents to promote the common good. This is where they choose to spend their time and effort. Leadership requires positive civic engagement. It is making sure that the communities I am part of are better because I am in them. And that I am better because of the communities I choose to be part of.
