Pasco County, Florida — Leadership Pasco is now accepting applications for the Class of 2022, with a deadline of May 15. Emerging and existing community leaders who live or work in Pasco County are invited to apply at LeadershipPasco.com.
Participants will be chosen from a competitive pool of applicants interested in learning about the important issues facing Pasco County and committed to utilizing their leadership abilities for its long-term benefit. Leadership Pasco plans to safely resume in-person events beginning in August.
“Choosing a select group of class members from so many outstanding leader applicants becomes more challenging every year. We’re excited to identify leaders with a desire to enhance their strategic and creative thinking and position themselves, and their company, for greater success.” said Don Anderson, president, Leadership Pasco.
Since 1991, Leadership Pasco has introduced business and community leaders to major facets of the Pasco County community through an intensive ten-month course. Class members participate in full-day program sessions, tours, and candid conversations with community leaders to broaden their local understanding of the ever-changing needs of Pasco County. Topics include criminal justice, healthcare, education, government, infrastructure, tourism, and business industries.
In addition, each Leadership Pasco class is responsible for making a positive impact within the community by organizing a class project that brings charitable people and resources together to address a particular social, educational, economic, environmental, or cultural need in Pasco County.
Applications will be reviewed by the Leadership Pasco Recruitment Committee in early-June and selected Class of 2021 members will be contacted by the mid-June 2020. Monthly program sessions begin with orientation in August 2021 and conclude with a graduation ceremony in May 2022.
