Recruitment begins for 2014 Tahoe leadership program

Special to the Sun

The North Lake Tahoe-Truckee Leadership Program is accepting applications for the 2014 program.

This program creates an opportunity for potential leaders to broaden their understanding of regional issues and opportunities, while developing and honing leadership skills.

Since 2004, the program has graduated more than 200 individuals. These alumni are now challenging themselves while serving their employers and our community in a variety of community-building efforts.

The workshops will again be led by Shannon Beets, vice president/provost at Sierra Nevada College in Incline Village.

Each workshop is integrated with one-half of the time spent on regional issues such as health and education, planning for the future, and non-profit advocacy; and one-half on leadership skill development such as collaboration, team basics, and negotiation.

"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 of Commerce.

Businesses can also help support the program with a one day sponsorship for $500.

Tuition fee for the Leadership Program is $750; $500 for non-profit agencies.
