North Lake Tahoe-Truckee Leadership Program
The North Lake Tahoe-Truckee Leadership Program is now accepting applications for the 2018 program. This award winning program creates an opportunity for potential leaders to broaden their understanding of the region and its issues, challenges and opportunities, while developing and honing their leadership skills. Since 2004, the program has graduated over 320 individuals. These alumni are now challenging themselves, serving their employers and our community in a variety of active community-building efforts.
The workshops will again be led by Shannon Beets, Vice President/Provost at Sierra Nevada College. Each workshop is integrated with time spent on regional issues such as environment, affordable housing, transportation, local food sources, planning for the future, and non-profit advocacy; and also on leadership skill development such as making effective decisions, steward leadership, team basics, networking, personality traits, public speaking, and change management.
The program begins in January and ends with a May graduation. It includes five sessions, with optional days where participants will be “out in the field” getting a close-up view of issues, how various agencies work, and the challenges facing our community.
“The quality of leadership in any community is not to be taken for granted. New leaders must be trained, educated and informed,” said Lynn Saunders, President/CEO of the Truckee Donner Chamber.
Tuition fee for the Leadership Program is $750 for businesses and $500 for non-profit agencies. The fee covers all expenses of the program including meals and supplies. Partial scholarships are available. Deadline for applications is December 1, 2017. Space is limited and the class is once again expected to fill!
