Leadership Tahoe-Truckee seeks applicants for 2000-01

Leadership Tahoe-Truckee 2000 is accepting applications for its annual program designed to enhance the collaborative leadership efforts of individuals in the Tahoe-Truckee region.

“The goal of Leadership Tahoe-Truckee is to promote regional thinking, improve communication skills and improve collaboration among individuals throughout the entire region,” 1999 alumnus and Truckee Town Engineer Dan Wilkins said.

The entire program is dependent upon the volunteer efforts of the previous years’ alumni, who function as leaders of the various sessions designed to fulfill the program’s goals, Wilkins said.

Leadership Tahoe-Truckee is designed as a two-phase program.

During Phase I, participants attend workshops designed to introduce them to community issues and the top community decision-makers, leaders and thinkers addressing those important issues.

Each of the six workshop sessions involves either lectures, panel presentations, field trips, group discussions or a combination of these four elements.

Phase I of the program begins with a two-day retreat in June, followed by a full-day class held once each month from July through November. In December, participants attend a celebration dinner marking the final meeting of the Phase I portion of the program.

“I saw this as an opportunity to meet people and get a broader perspective on the issues affecting this area,” Wilkins said. “I now have a better understanding of the intricacies as to how this region operates.”

Phase II involves year-long participant application of the knowledge and skills gained in Phase I.

They assist in the design and facilitation of the following year’s Leadership Tahoe-Truckee program, drawing on their own experiences in the program and the expertise of other area leaders.

This portion of the program is designed to solidify relationships between past, present and future alumni to further the networking and collaborative efforts of the program.

As many as 30 participants will be selected for the class of 2000, with preference given to those who have resided in the Tahoe-Truckee region for at least one year and who have demonstrated community involvement or interest.

Applicants must adhere to the required time commitment beginning in June 2000 and running through December 2001. The application form, references and possibly an interview will provide the basis for admission to the program.

The total cost of the program is $600 and limited scholarship assistance is available.

The application deadline is May 1 to assure consideration, though, if space permits, late applications may receive consideration as well.
