Submitted by Howard B. Owens on October 11, 2012 - 12:11pm
Leadership Genesee, a community leadership program uniting a diverse group of people from business, government, and non-profit organizations to study local issues is seeking applicants for its 2013 class.
Our community needs succession planning for leadership, not just elected, appointed or paid employment leadership, but the kind that receives no ‘paycheck’. Community volunteers who work tirelessly for organizations that improve the health of the human condition must understand the issues facing the community in order to be effective. Leadership Genesee provides the education and training for leaders as it explores the community and encourages the leader within.
Each year, Leadership Genesee selects 25 individuals to participate in a unique form of adult citizenship education. The year-long curriculum is designed to raise awareness of the needs and challenges that affect Genesee County and enhance individual leadership skills through practice with a focus on civic responsibility and community stewardship. Through group activities, tours and presentations by key community leaders, Leadership Genesee is developing leadership for our community, with our community and in our community. Annual tuition is $1,950.
For an application or information, call Peggy Marone, Leadership Genesee director at 343-3040 x 118 or visit our web site at www.leadershipgenesee.shutterfly.com. Leadership Genesee is a program of Cornell Cooperative Extension which provides equal program and employment opportunities.
