Leadership Oswego County seeks applicants for class of 2018

Program grooms new wave of community leaders


    Leadership Oswego County, a SUNY Oswego-administered, business-sponsored program to actively grow and nurture community leaders and stewards, has an Aug. 14 deadline for up-and-coming individuals with exceptional leadership potential to apply to join the silver anniversary class.

     

    The program, led by the college's Office of Business and Community Relations, explores community trusteeship, leadership skills, current issues and networking with a diverse group of community residents.

     

    The class of 2018 will embark in September on a nine-month course of intensive study of Oswego County and its resources, vital issues of today and visioning for tomorrow.

     

    Key community members mentor and share with participants the skills and knowledge needed to be effective leaders. Graduates of the program are better prepared to serve the community in the roles of board member, citizen, employee or volunteer with organizations that serve Central New York.

     

    The $975 tuition covers travel to and from LOC's retreat, taking place Sept. 21-22 at Tailwater Lodge (www.tailwaterlodge.com) in the Oswego County hamlet of Altmar, as well as the overnight stay, a scenic bus tour of Oswego County, two complimentary tickets for graduation (dinner included), and breakfast, lunch and snacks each class day. Scholarships are available.
