Participants Journey into Volunteerism

The Leadership Frisco Advisory Council is proud to announce the participants for the 2011-2012 year, the 15th class for the program.* Leadership Frisco, a nine-month community leadership program sponsored by the Frisco Chamber of Commerce, develops a pool of qualified, well-informed individuals set to assume leadership roles in the community. It seeks out local, highly motivated individuals interested in expanding their leadership skills, deepening their sense of civic responsibility and heightening their involvement in volunteer opportunities, neighborhood associations and the community as a whole.

The program, which starts in September with a team building day, includes one full day each month dedicated to exploring the inner workings of Frisco’s government, educational system, economic development, service organizations, regional issues, leisure and culture, and public safety. Participants will also learn about and get to practice skills critical to working with volunteers and groups in the community and their businesses. Members of the program will also select and complete a class project during their year that benefits Frisco.

For more information about the Leadership Frisco program or to find out about potential sponsorship opportunities, please contact the Frisco Chamber of Commerce at (972) 335-9522 or visit www.friscochamber.com/chamber/leadershipfrisco. The Chamber introduced the Leadership Frisco program in 1997 to educate and prepare future city leaders and community volunteers.
