The Leadership Lake Tahoe Program 2006 will begin with a Friday evening reception and an all-day Saturday orientation.

The weekend commitment is scheduled Feb. 24-25. The sessions were added in response to the alumni suggestion that the group would benefit from getting to know one another earlier in the program as well as the Task Force decision to include more information on communication skills and the media.

The purpose of Leadership Lake Tahoe, a program co-sponsored by the Tahoe Douglas and South Lake Tahoe chambers of commerce, is to continue development of a corps of informed, well-rounded, committed and qualified individuals capable of providing dynamic leadership in myriad roles throughout the South Shore community. As they enter the fourth year, the organizers feel confident that this is one of the finest programs they have ever sponsored.

The program presents a curriculum that exposes the candidates to the major components of life on the south shore of Lake Tahoe. It includes:

— Orientation with an emphasis on identifying personal leadership styles and discussions on Situational Leadership and the Ethics of Leadership.

— Nevada/Douglas County Government.

— California/El Dorado County/City of South Lake Tahoe Government.

— Public Safety/Judicial System.

— Education.

— Tourism.

— Economy and Economic Development and Redevelopment.

— Environment and Transportation.

— Health and Social Services/Community Resources.

— Communications (media relations, public speaking etc.)

— Finale (course review, application, goals).

The program also includes a rich experiential homework component and class project.

Leadership Lake Tahoe requires a commitment for one day a month for 10 months, an orientation session, plus the time it takes to complete the experiential homework.

Leadership Lake Tahoe 2006 begins Feb. 24. Applications are due Feb. 10.

Tuition is $500 for chamber members, and there is financial assistance available. For more information, call the South Lake Tahoe Chamber at (530) 541-5255 or the Tahoe Douglas Chamber at (775) 588-4591.
