One of our intrepid correspondents has taken the time to plot the cities for the "new & improved" version of Carlson Leadership Academy (CLA) as specified by the National Leadership Committee (NLC).
As he puts it:
If you draw a circle around the 5 cities they booked (brown circles) that is about 250 miles(5 hours drive) you see where the chapters who get screwed by the CLA Change.
The problem becomes less if you add locations to Omaha or Kansas City, Roanoke, and Memphis (blue circles). All cities where we have hosted CLAs in the past.
Supposedly the staff ran the numbers to calculate that the average chapter only added 2 hours to their drive. I think that number skewed because of the chapters who are located around NY and Atlanta. I really feel bad for the chapters from ND through KS.
Let's all pray for good weather in mid-February. It's going to be a looooong drive for some chapters.
