TAHOE/TRUCKEE – The North Tahoe-Truckee Leadership Program gives local professionals a chance to develop leadership skills and become involved in our local communities.Participants in the program all love living and working in the area, and the six-month course provides an opportunity to meet other professionals, hear about local issues and plan and execute projects to help make a difference in our community.Six of the program’s participants were present Thursday at the Sun’s Truckee office to plan and edit today’s news section as part of the paper’s third annual Editors for a Day exercise.Other projects this year include encouraging small business development in the area, affordable housing options for local professionals, providing education on home fire safety, building a young professionals networking organization and creating a regionally grown food distribution network.Learn more about the projects on Thursday, May 31, at 2:30 p.m. at the North Tahoe Events Center in Kings Beach.
