The card can be found on The Lincoln Leadership Institute’s website: http://gettysburgleadership.com/birthday-card-2013.
In recognition of this historic event, The Lincoln Leadership Institute aims to collect 150 birthday card signatures for Lincoln before Feb. 12, the date of Lincoln’s birth. All signers of the card will be eligible for a drawing for one free seat at an upcoming "A Transformational Journey from Gettysburg" leadership development experience. The Lincoln Leadership Institute will also select three individuals who will each receive a $500 discount on a seat in an upcoming session of "A Transformational Journey from Gettysburg."
Led and hosted by Steven B. Wiley, “the best speaker you’ve never heard of” according to ABC News, "A Transformational Journey from Gettysburg" is an immersive experience that uses compelling case studies, a renowned faculty of Civil War scholars, historians, business thought leaders and the hallowed ground of Gettysburg National Military Park to offer insight into leadership principles and concepts that can be applied immediately to one’s own life situation.
The Lincoln Leadership Institute’s leadership development experience is one that has helped to develop thousands of the nation’s top executives from the majority of the Fortune 100 companies such as Apple, Bank of America, Pfizer, Federal Express, ExxonMobil and Time Warner, as well as scores of federal government agencies, including Homeland Security, Departments of Defense, Justice and Interior and over 75 Presidential Appointees and their teams.
Lincoln was born on Feb. 12, 1809 and served as our nation’s 16th president from 1861 until his assassination in 1865. Milestones of Lincoln’s presidential service include his 1863 signing of the Emancipation Proclamation, a document that declared slaves forever free, and his Gettysburg Address. Delivered in November 1863 at the dedication of Soldiers’ National Cemetery, the Gettysburg Address is one of the most memorable speeches in American history.
The Lincoln Leadership Institute’s headquarters are located on the third floor of the David Wills House on Gettysburg’s Lincoln Square. The Wills House is the place where Abraham Lincoln spent the night and put the finishing touches on the Gettysburg Address.
