PRESS RELEASE: LEADERSHIP PLANO SELECTS CLASS 33
Plano, TX – August 18 – The Plano Chamber of Commerce and the Leadership Plano Board of Directors are pleased to announce the 36 members of Leadership Plano Class 33. The new 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.
According to Program Director Carole Greisdorf, “Leadership Plano has made a tremendously positive impact on the Plano community and beyond. Its graduates serve in numerous elected positions and non-profit boards throughout north Texas. This program provides a solid foundation for service.”
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 19 at 7 a.m. 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, the 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.
