SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Community engagement was the theme for this month’s Leadership Greater Syracuse class day.
About 50 Central New Yorkers are in the Class of 2012 and are now about halfway through the year-long leadership development program. Wednesday's session dealt with local human services agencies and how to volunteer your time to help area non-profit organizations. The class was held at the new McMahon/Ryan Child Advocacy Center facility.
"The importance is really to get people involved. A lot of people are afraid to serve on boards because they don't know quite where to start and where to begin. And this day really opens up to some of the questions you could ask yourself to make sure it's a good fit, to make sure the organizations you get involved with are the ones that you're the most passionate about," said Sherry Mossotti, Leadership Greater Syracuse Executive Director and CEO.
LGS is inviting the community to two upcoming events. This Friday is a 5 p.m. fireside chat with Congresswoman Ann Marie Buerkle at a historic home in Solvay. Next Tuesday is a breakfast discussion of our economy with Central New York Business Journal publisher Norm Poltensen. That event will be at the Doubletree Hotel in East Syracuse.
Information on both events is available at the LGS website, leadsyr.org.
