Leadership from the Arts Council of Greater Lansing will have the opportunity to attend Leadership Lansing, the Lansing Regional Chamber of Commerce’s leadership initiative, at no cost this year thanks to a contribution from Resch Strategies.
Matt Resch, founder of the Lansing-based public relations and public affairs firm, said the scholarship is being offered for the sixth consecutive year. “The Leadership Lansing program provides access to influential experiences and training for our local community leaders,” said Matt Resch, president of Resch Strategies. “Through our scholarship program, we are proud to provide support to local nonprofits like the Arts Council of Greater Lansing so that they can continue making a positive impact in our region.”
The Resch Strategies Leadership Lansing Scholarship was first established in 2015 to encourage area non-profit leaders to participate in the program by covering the full cost of tuition. Participants in the program engage in seven workshops over the course of eight months where they are exposed to key local institutions, industry sectors and business leaders. The Arts Council of Greater Lansing supports, strengthens and promotes arts, culture and creativity in the Capital Region.
The Council is a member service organization, granting agency and regional nonprofit that cultivates opportunities for artists and arts and cultural organizations. “I am excited for the opportunity to participate in the Leadership Lansing programming, thanks to the generous support from Resch Strategies,” said Meghan Martin, executive director of the Arts Council of Greater Lansing. “I look forward to taking everything I learn from this leadership training and using it to support arts and culture in the Lansing area.”
Past recipients of the scholarship are Child and Family Charities, Hospice of Lansing, Transformation GEMS Women Entrepreneur Startup Accelerator, Lansing Art Gallery and Education Center, Davies Project for Mid-Michigan Children, and First Tee of Mid-Michigan.
