Leadership Mecosta 2012 will be starting soon and being an Alumni member I can attest to the importance of this program for anyone looking to hone their leadership skills or get to know their County better. Leadership Mecosta is a nine month program that includes a two-day retreat at Cranhill Ranch and eight once a month day long sessions at various places throughout the County. Participants will enjoy learning more about the community they live in as well as sessions focusing on leadership skill development and community education which includes an inside look at the systems that make our County what it is today. I have lived in the area 30 years and thought I knew the County quite well but each week I was overwhelmed by what I didn't know. Seeing the behind the County "behind the scenes" is a great way to find out more about the place we call home. Here is a link to the Mecosta County Chamber of Commerce website where you can even find an online application form. Anyone interested might want to call the Chamber direct at (231) 796-7649 as the cut off for registering is early this week. If you can take advantage of this opportunity I highly urge you to do it. The networks you will build on will be with you forever.
