Leadership Tioga held its kick-off session on Jan. 9 at the beautiful Belva Lockwood Inn, located in Historic downtown Owego.
The Leadership Tioga Program, run by the Tioga County Chamber of Commerce, is committed to inspiring and connecting participants to services in our community by promoting personal growth, leadership development, networking, and skill building. Various class locations throughout the County give participants the opportunity to learn more about what Tioga County has to offer.
Dynamic speakers discuss topics ranging from volunteerism, performance management, public safety and human services, to name just a few.
The class heard from speaker Robert Williams on the importance of community and volunteerism. Facilitator Jill Teeter introduced the class project for this year, which will include community service for a non-profit organization in Tioga County.
The class was provided with a comprehensive list of organizations, agencies, and groups in Tioga County to choose from. Upon completion of their community service, they will be expected to give a class report on the details of their experience.
This year’s class has 21 attendees and includes a student from Owego Free Academy.
“We are excited to have a student with us this year; I think it will bring a fresh new perspective and viewpoint to our discussions,” said Teeter.
