Leadership Rockland is proud to announce the members of this year’s class. Twenty-six Rockland leaders will take a year-long journey as they get an insider’s view into what makes Rockland County the wonderful melting pot that it is.
Over the next ten months, the participants will be immersed in a learning experience that will give them access and provide insight into the very heart of what makes Rockland the great place it is to live, raise a family and work. The smallest geographical county in New York, but perhaps the most culturally diverse, Rockland faces many issues that these leaders will learn about from a variety of subject matter experts.
“The Class of 2016 is a mix of strong, dynamic individuals who have demonstrated an interest in making Rockland a better place,” stated Dan Weisberg, the Chair of the Leadership Rockland program. Leadership Rockland just celebrated their 25th Anniversary and was a 2015 recipient of the Rockland Business Association’s esteemed Pinnacle Award.
