Vermace completes leadership program

Shirley Vermace or Decorah, District 3 Supervisor, Winneshiek County successfully completed the inaugural Leading on Purpose Academy, facilitated by the Professional Development Academy in partnership with the National Association of Counties.

The 8-week program helped participants representing counties across the nation gain increased clarity in their roles as leaders and increased confidence in their ability to lead on purpose.
Intentionally designed from scientific evidence and proven practices from great leaders, Leading on Purpose helps leaders align their actions to purpose to help shape strategy, navigate complexity, increase employee engagement, and deliver better results for their counties and communities.
“The Leading on Purpose program provided a unique and challenging professional development experience that will help us accomplish our goals in Winneshiek County,” said Vermace. “The mix of real-time instruction, webinars, and engagement with a cohort of colleagues gave me the chance to learn from distinguished experts alongside county professionals who are facing similar challenges and opportunities.”
Nearly 400 leaders graduated from the inaugural Leading on Purpose cohort. They join more than 10,000 professionals from nearly two-thirds of the nation’s counties who have participated in NACo’s Leadership Academies since 2018. Enrollment is now open for 2024 program sessions.
