Leadership Sarasota County, a program of The Greater Sarasota Chamber of Commerce, is excited to announce the roster of participants for the Class of 2016.
The year-long program offers an opportunity to connect with the leaders within the Sarasota County area and gives participants a unique orientation to the Sarasota community. One day a month, the class learns about topics like Health & Human Services, Government, Arts & Culture, Education and Commerce & Industry. An opening retreat and closing retreat are also an integral part of the experience and helps to build teamwork among participants. The class will also select and carry through a project geared toward the betterment of the community.
