Early in 2017 Leadership Cumberland will once again offer “Executive Connections”, an exclusive leadership program geared for Cumberland County executives and senior management either new to the area and/or their position.
As part of their core “Fellows” program begun in 1989, Leadership Cumberland has developed well over 500 emerging leaders ready to make a difference in their workplace and community as part of the core program.
Executive series are also a common component of community leadership programs. The target audience largely includes newly promoted and/or relocated executives, but also embraces esteemed and established business leaders. Based on best practices and bench marking, the Board of Directors believed the 25th Anniversary in beginning in 2014 was an excellent time to showcase this new opportunity for Cumberland County.
“Executive Connections” facilitates networking opportunities among decision-makers while enhancing their understanding and knowledge of Cumberland County. Such opportunities lead to a more vibrant, collaborative and thriving place to live, work and play.
The 2017 series begins on February 2 with a most delightful reception offering an overview of the region at the Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet, highlighted by a cameo performance. The next session on February 23 will include dinner and presentation at the Cumberland County Historical Society on how the past still influences our culture today and the influence of the military and public sector.
The March 23 session at the Luhrs Performing Arts Center of Shippensburg University will focus on our political and educational systems with their myriad of school districts, townships and other municipal entities. The economy is the topic at the Rolls Royce Museum in Silver Springs Township on April 13 with many surprising moments on the global forces impacting local agriculture, tourism and other area businesses. The May 4 finale will focus on a vision for the future of the region and held at Kings Gap Environmental Center’s magnificent Cameron-Masland Mansion.
