– Rep. Donna Oberlander (R-Clarion/Armstrong/Forest) was recently honored for graduating from a national leadership program through the Council of State Governments.
The Henry Toll Fellowship is a highly selective, premiere leadership development program for state government officials that drew 48 participants from 33 states in 2019. The program includes a five-day leadership “boot camp,” with sessions designed to stimulate personal assessment and growth, while providing valuable networking and relationship-building opportunities.
The program selected the participants from all three branches of government. Each year’s curriculum is unique but encourages participants to evaluate and adapt the way they interact with each other and the world around them.
“I consider it a real honor to be selected as one of this year’s fellows,” said Oberlander. “As a lifelong learner, I believe that opportunities such as this allow us to learn more about the way we operate as leaders in government and how certain experiences can help us grow. My overall goal with this program is to be an even more effective voice for the people of the 63rd District.”
The Council of State Governments is the nation’s only organization serving all three branches of state government. CSG is a region-based forum that fosters the exchange of insights, ideas and best practices to help state officials shape public policy. This offers unparalleled regional, national and international opportunities to network, develop leaders, collaborate and create problem-solving partnerships.
