Plano, TX - August 1, 2018 - The Plano Chamber of Commerce and the Leadership Plano Board of Directors are pleased to announce the 36 members of Leadership Plano Class 36. The roster of community leaders includes civic and community-focused, forward-thinking individuals who are committed to the continued growth and improvement of Plano. Leadership Plano has helped to develop the leadership skills of many civic leaders who have served our community through more than three decades of growth and change.
As a program of the Plano Chamber, Leadership Plano will now come under the direction of Tracy Bartholomew, Director of Membership & Volunteer Development.
“Leadership Plano continues to educate and empower future leaders to serve as volunteers, elected officials, and educated citizens,” states Jamee Jolly, President/CEO of the Plano Chamber.
“As Plano continues to evolve, Leadership Plano has also evolved to include a stronger focus on leadership development while also maintaining the core community awareness curriculum. We look forward to welcoming Class 36 as they begin their journey with Leadership Plano.”
Spanning nine months from September through May, the program is designed to increase community awareness and leadership skills. The opening retreat, a two-day orientation weekend beginning September 15, 2018, at 7 AM at the Plano Chamber, focuses on individual leadership styles and techniques. From October through May, the class spends one day a month examining specific aspects of the community such as education, government, local business and economic development, health and human services, criminal justice system, the arts, and more.
Gaining a broad perspective of the Plano community equips participants to become well-rounded leaders ready to apply their skills in a variety of ways. Leadership Plano provides a foundation for long-term involvement in Plano and assists in launching a supportive community network of colleagues and friends.
