Now accepting Leadership Action Project Proposals
For the Leadership Brevard Class of 2019 Program Year
This fall, LEAD Brevard will be entering its 34th year of achieving excellence in leadership in Brevard County by “working together to strengthen our community by inspiring people to lead”, and we need your continued support to achieve this mission.
LEAD Brevard is seeking project proposals from Brevard County’s non-profit 501 (c)(3) organizations and Brevard County’s municipalities for consideration as a Leadership Action Project (LAP) for the 2019 Class of Leadership Brevard. Project proposals should be designed with the understanding that the Leadership Brevard class is comprised of talented and professionally accomplished individuals. We seek projects that are large enough in scope to utilize the skills of 8 – 12 team members, with different skills and experience and that will benefit an established 501(c) (3) nonprofit agency or public sector organization.
If you have a community project proposal that meets LEAD Brevard’s qualifying criteria, please complete a proposal application (click on the link below) and return it to the LEAD Brevard office by mail, email or fax no later than 4:00 p.m., Friday, July 20, 2018.
To submit a proposal, view previous LAP project summaries, and see completed project presentations:
Completed proposals can be mailed to: LEAD Brevard 123 Barton Blvd., Suite 101, Rockledge, FL 32955
Emailed to:
 KristenK@LEADBrevard.org or faxed to: 321-632-0207
