Warsaw (NY) - The Wyoming County Chamber and Tourism office is pleased to announce that it is currently accepting applications for the 2019 Leadership Wyoming Class to begin March 25, 2019. After a one-year hiatus, the program is back with new speakers, locations, and projects. The Friday, February 11, 2019 application deadline is fast approaching and interested individuals should contact the Chamber to reserve their spot as soon as possible.
Now in its 12th year, Leadership Wyoming aims to change the way graduates think and act in Wyoming County, their professional lives and in the community. Through the ten month program, participants will examine and experience major aspects of life, culture, and education; agriculture, business and industry; governmental systems; and community resources, and volunteerism in Wyoming County. Through participation with guest speakers, panel discussions, site tours, leadership and strategic training, public presentations, as well as, group problem solving and team building exercises, the program will develop leaders who have a new perspective and a greater sense of purpose in their personal lives, professional endeavors, and greater community. A new, class identified, developed and solved community impact project has been added to the program this year.
“Our purpose is to create a Leadership Wyoming program that offers a transformational experience for the participants. We seek individuals from all walks of life who want to develop new skill sets and learn more about Wyoming County,” said Wyoming County Chamber CEO, Scott Gardner. “Leadership Wyoming will educate, inform, and reshape the participants thinking on where they live, and how they can involve themselves in the future of our county. The mission is to create leaders who will possess a strong sense of ownership, trustworthiness, responsibility, and commitment to improving themselves, their businesses, and their community.”
