We are happy to share the good news that Barbara Osborne, of Bishop West Real Estate has been admitted into the 2017-2018 Massachusetts Leadership Academy. Barbara is Past President and Past Berkshire ROTY, and in addition to local committee service, also holds a seat on the MAR Finance , the MAR Board of Directors and the MAR RIEPAC committees. This elite group of leaders, only 10 chosen statewide, will work together for year in an intensive training course that combines individual study, group sessions, team-building exercises, goal setting, personal profile analyses, network building and communication skills. This experience is designed to train, nurture and inspire tomorrow’s state leaders. During the retreats, a series of respected national and regional instructors and leadership volunteers will guide you through the fundamentals of what every good leader needs to know. Prestigious alums from Berkshire County include MAR Treasurer Anne Meczywor and most recently, incoming President Cortney Dupont. Feel free to send congratulations directly to Barb.
