Leadership Geauga County Hosts Annual “Taste of Leadership”

The list of graduates from Leadership Geauga County reads like a local Who’s Who: Sheriff Dan McClelland, Former Commissioner Tracy Jemison, Cardinal Superintendent Dr. Scott Hunt, UH Geauga Medical Center CEO Steve Jones, United Way Executive Director Kimm Leininger, Kinetico Benefits Director Laurel Hildebrand and Municipal Court Judge Honorable Terri Stupica, along with more than 400 others. Leadership Geauga even has a few community at-large applications still available for the Class of 2016!

Leadership Geauga County is once again preparing the annual Taste of Geauga event. As in past years, attendees enjoy discovering what local establishments present to their patrons in the order of appetizers and desserts. This also allows for Leadership Geauga to provide an overview of what the program can offer the future leaders of Geauga County.

We are looking forward to sampling the Taste of Geauga in April 22, 2015, at the Munson Township Hall from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. The event provides an opportunity to meet with past and potential future Leadership class members. Your participation in recruitment is essential to the success of Leadership Geauga. As an alumnus you are encouraged to bring a guest, friend, neighbor, or coworker who would be interested in becoming involved in the Leadership Geauga Program.

Leadership Geauga, which began in 1995, is a leadership development program aimed at increasing the leadership pool for community activities in Geauga County. Each year, approximately 35 people are selected to participate in the program, which begins in September and ends in June the following year.

The selection committee seeks diversity in the make-up of the Leadership Geauga class in regard to age, ethnicity, gender, socio-economic factors and occupation. Candidates should exhibit an interest in civic involvement.

During the 10-month program, participants receive in-depth education on critical issues in the community including Government, Human Services, Business, Education, Health & Safety, Arts & Leisure, Youth, and Agriculture, as well as leadership and personal development topics.
