Chamber accepting applications for fall leadership classes

Union Democrat staff

The Tuolumne County Chamber of Commerce is accepting applications for the 2011 Leadership Tuolumne County class.

The class consists of an orientation retreat and then eight full days of instruction and discussion on topics pertinent to the future of Tuolumne County.

Classes are held one Thursday a month from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and can run longer depending on the material.

Much of the information comes as a surprise, even to Tuolumne

County natives, said Chamber President and CEO George Segarini.

"They learn things about community that they live in that they wouldn't otherwise know about," Segarini said.

The class is aimed at adults who want to take a role in local

leadership or government. It covers topics including health services,

law and justice and land use issues using professionals and government

officials as teachers to give participants perspective on otherwise

obscure issues.

The Leadership Tuolumne County executive board has capped the class

size at 15 students, Segarini said. Applicants must show an interest in

the community and a strong desire to participate in the class.

Applications are due Aug. 6 and tuition is $750.

That pays for meals, materials and other program costs. It also

subsidizes the youth leadership program, which is available free of

charge for high schoolers.

The youth deadline is Sept. 6.

For more information, call Segarini at 533-4212.
