Prepare an informed, energetic and visionary leadership base to serve Rockland County.
Identify, Inform and Inspire leaders to better serve our community by increasing their awareness of the many facets of Rockland County.
At the end of the ten-month program, participants will:
According to Dorothy C. Filoramo,the immediate past chair of the Leadership Rockland Board of Directors, "The Leadership Rockland Program is a valued resource for our community. By "identifying and informing" emerging leaders through an educational experience focused on the infrastructure of this county and presented from the unique perspective of the actual leaders, the program engages and challenges its participants to examine issues and seek solutions."
"Graduates of the program are a cadre of activists who are involved and will serve in all facets of the public and private sector. Knowledge is power, and with this tool, Leadership Rockland is a powerful advocate of community action" added Filoramo.
Newly elected chair Jan Degenshein concurs and adds "This is not your father's Rockland County. Pressing social, economic and environmental issues have surfaced and must be addressed. Class participants will be expected to take a hard look at both the beneficial and problematic attributes with which we are confronted, and – equipped with a more holistic knowledge imparted by the program – configure their own personal action plans for resolution."
The monthly sessions are lead by knowledgeable and dedicated coordinators, many of who have graduated from Leadership Rockland, whose expertise in their field makes this the best educational program on the County of Rockland.
