NOMINATIONS DUE FOR THE FELLOWS AND YOUTH PROGRAMS Leadership Lincoln is in the process of recruiting participants for our 2005 - 2006 Fellows Program. This class will begin in September 2005 and will run through the first week of June, 2006. As in the past, the program will run on the second Thursday of each month from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Tuition is $1500.00. We hope you will consider nominating individuals for the 2005-2006 class. You may do this by: Calling the Lincoln office (441-4661) with your nominee’s name and address or emailing the information to leadexec@aol.com. You may also fax the form you should have received in the mail to the LL office at 476-2743. If you know a to-be sophomore in high school who you think might be a good candidate for YLL, please forward his/her name on to us also. YLL will begin with an overnight retreat in September and program days are the third Tuesday of each month from 8:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. Applications for both the Fellows and Youth Programs are available through the LL office and also can be downloaded from our website: www.leadershiplincoln.org. JUST FOR LL MEMBERS AND SPOUSES/SIGNIFICANT OTHERS: A CLOSE AND PERSONAL CONVERSATION WITH CANDIDATES Spend an evening in dialogue with Lincoln City Council candidates at the upcoming Leadership Lincoln City Council Election Forum. The Forum will be held Thursday, April 28 - just 5 days before the election - from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at Nebraska Wesleyan University's Callen Conference Center. You'll have the opportunity to pose questions to the candidates and to review their campaign literature. The Forum is being held exclusively for members of LL. Many thanks to: Kathy Campbell, who will serve as moderator; Nebraska Wesleyan University for hosting the Forum; and Leadership Lincoln's Member Services Committee, who arranged the event. In order to help us prepare for the evening, please email the Leadership Lincoln office at leadexec@aol.com to let us know you will be attending! LINCOLN ON BOARD!!!! Leadership Lincoln has just undertaken a new project. Lincoln On Board is a unique and exciting community building and fundraising project, celebrating everything that makes up the community through an “opoly” style real estate board game. The game is designed to have features of Lincoln captured within its look and play. The game itself will be customized specifically for Lincoln On Board and will showcase the businesses and attractions that make our community so special. This will be a game Lincoln can truly call its own! The project was “kicked off” in March and already has some fun notables “on board”. Ameritas Life Insurance Corp., Aquila, BryanLGH, The Cornhusker Marriott, Downtown Lincoln Association, Duncan Aviation, DuTeau Chevrolet, Jacob North, Lincoln Electric System, NEBCO, Olsson Associates, Pinnacle Bank, State Farm, TierOne Bank, Union Bank, Valentinos, and

Wells Fargo, to name just a few, have all signed on to be a part of the game. B&R Stores has agreed to be our major retail outlet with Lee Booksellers assisting in that effort. Jim McKee is writing a brief history of each of the businesses on the board and that booklet will be inserted into each game. The Lincoln Journal Star, KOLN/KGIN, KLKN, and the radio stations of Broadcast House, Clear Channel and Three Eagles Communication have all agreed to be partners in the project and will contribute between $150,000 and $200,000 in media exposure. In the design and development of the game the Lincoln On Board Committee would like to know what features you think are important to be represented on the game box and board. These may be geographic features (example: Capital Beach or Salt Creek), businesses (example: restaurants or retail), attractions (example: Folsom Children’s Zoo or Morrill Hall), community organizations (example: libraries or Malone Center), special features (example: the Sower on the Capitol or Memorial Stadium) or any other features of Lincoln that you think are special and representative of Lincoln. Please send your “vote” on the special features which you think would make this game especially representative of Lincoln by emailing LOB@LeadershipLincoln.org or by mailing your ideas to Lincoln On Board, Suite 300, 920 O Street, Lincoln, Neb., 68508. The game will be developed this spring and summer and available for sale in the fall. Watch for tournaments and other opportunities to have fun with Lincoln On Board. The public will be notified when these will be available for purchase in the fall – a great idea for tourist souvenirs or as holiday gifts for friends, neighbors or relatives who live here now or as a fond remembrance of their days in Lincoln. If you're interested in being a part of Lincoln on Board, please call the LL office at 441-4661. 2005 AG TOUR Once again, Leadership Lincoln will join with Leadership Omaha and the LEAD program on a summer AG TOUR.
