Enrollment is open through June 26 for the Leadership Los Alamos Class of 2016 and everyone is welcome to apply.
Between now and then, the Los Alamos Daily Post is publishing a series of Q&A profiles on recent LLA graduates who talk about their experience in the program.
Leadership Los Alamos is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3), tax exempt organization founded to identify current and emerging leaders in the Los Alamos community, enhance their leadership skills, and deepen their knowledge of the challenges and opportunities facing our area.
In the Leadership Los Alamos program, participants learn as much about themselves as they do about leadership, teamwork and the community. To learn more, visit About Leadership Los Alamos and Applying to the Program.

The Q&A profile series continues with Doris Prokof, Assistant County Attorney:
LLA: How many years have you lived and/or worked in Los Alamos?
Prokop: I have lived and worked in Los Alamos for 35 years.
LLA: Why did you enroll in Leadership Los Alamos?
Prokop: I joined Leadership Los Alamos because I am looking for my next big challenge.
LLA: What was your biggest “take-away” from the class?
Prokop: My biggest “aha” moment if you will, was watching the class complete leadership projects. We were such a diverse group that we knew a lot of people and had different personalities, that was great for networking around problems. I really learned so much!
LLA: What are you doing with what your learned?
Prokop: One thing I am doing with what I learned is to step out and say yes when I was asked to take a leadership role in an organization. I recommend this program, it will help the people who take it accomplish their goals, and it will help our community to thrive.
