Announcing Leadership Potter County 2018
Every day we are presented with opportunities to have an impact on the communities where we live and work. Whether it’s coaching Little League, serving on a non-profit board, or being part of an organization or committee, one of the most critical needs in the county is strong leadership. Leadership Potter County 2018 (LPC) will help you expand your personal leadership skills, introduce you to key issues currently facing the region, and provide you with an understanding of future trends that may impact your community.
As LPC celebrates its tenth year in 2018, an updated program will be rolled out. The program will cover important topics that teach participants about their own leadership styles and connect them to valuable resources in the county. New to the program are a customized learning environment, additional small group work, and “walk and talk” activities.
Megan Walck (LPC Class of 2016) had this to say, “Leadership Potter County had such a profound impact on me, as both an individual and a community member, that when my family decided to move to the United Arab Emirates in the middle of the program, I knew that I needed to continue the course from afar. I will be forever thankful for the insight, the generosity, the knowledge, and the connections Leadership Potter County has provided.”
