RGA is a membership-driven organization, and the success is based on its members and dedicated leadership. The RGA Leadership Academy is designed to identify and provide a track for interested members who desire to be our leaders of tomorrow. As RGA continues to grow and thrive as a leader in our community, we want to provide our future leaders with the best educational opportunities to help direct our organization to its fullest potential.

There are six/seven sessions or events with varying topics for accepted applicants. Attendance is required at all sessions. If an applicant misses a session, he/she will be required to attend the same session in the next graduating class before graduating. 

Applications for the 2025 class will be available in the fall.
