LACONIA -- Leadership Lakes Region is gearing up for the start of its 17th program year with the Class of 2015 Orientation Day scheduled to take place at Gunstock in early October. Applications are now being accepted for this upcoming class.
With more than 260 alumni representing various professional careers, Leadership Lakes Region's program fosters civic engagement through eight once-a-month day-long seminars which educate, inform, challenge and teach leadership skills to its students.
"We have found the program especially beneficial for professionals who are new to the Lakes Region; we provide them an immediate network of area professionals from varying backgrounds as well as a crash course on the current factors influencing the Region", said program coordinator, Jennifer McLean.
Tuition for the annual program is $ 500 for those from non-profit agencies or from businesses with three or fewer employees, and $750 for those representing the private sector. Leadership Lakes Region does have some funding for partial tuition scholarships on a needs basis.
Businesses are encouraged to identify individuals within their company who would benefit from this career development opportunity. Corporate sponsorships of Program Days are always welcome. Current sponsoring organizations include Gunstock, Bank of New Hampshire, LRGHealthcare, Granite United Way, Northeast Delta Dental and Meredith Village Savings Bank.
Anyone interested in applying for the Leadership Lakes Region class which begins in October may contact the McLean at the Leadership office, 524-6791. More information, including the October-May program schedule and a program application, are available at the organization's website: www.leadershiplakesregion.org.
