2020 Leadership Program Application
The North Lake Tahoe-Truckee Leadership Program is now accepting applications for the 2020 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 more than 380 individuals. These alumni are now challenging themselves, serving their employers and our community in a variety of active community-building efforts.
The program begins in January and ends in June. It includes one welcome reception, five day-long sessions, one half day-long session, and optional field trips 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 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 the 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 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 Chamber of Commerce.
Tuition fee for the Leadership Program is $750 for businesses, $600 for special districts, and $500 for non-profit agencies. The fee covers all expenses of the program including meals and supplies. Partial scholarships are available. Deadline to apply is December 2, 2019. Space is limited, and the class is once again expected to fill!
