Every year the Johnny Appleseed District hosts their Leadership Academy (LeadAc), a conference dedicated to improving chorus operation and creating growth for members on an individual level. This edition of LeadAc was held on January 12th and 13th at the Crowne Plaza Worthington in Columbus, Ohio. 

Board Members of choruses throughout Ohio and the surrounding states braved the winter storm and treacherous conditions to learn from leaders in the Barbershop Harmony Society (BHS) including current BHS President, Skipp Kropp (pictured, right). Directors and Music VPs had the option to study under Robert Mance, and each 2018 Alliance Board Member in attendance had a specialist of the highest calibur instructing relevant courses. 

The weekend was a dramatic success in spite of the weather, offering camaraderie and growth to everyone in attendance. The conference included performances by seniors quartet "Spotlight", JAD District Champion "The Crew", and a remarkable mixed quartet named "The Headliners'. Beyond that, quartets in attendance donated themselves for a youth-in-harmony fundraising raffle. Chapter quartet "The Regulars" was won by Mansfield Fun Center Chordsmen, so be on the lookout for more information on that involvement.
