For 22 years, we have been building a community of informed, engaged, and active community leaders in Cortland County. When we look at our local boards and organizations, the impact is impressive. With class sizes steadily increasing, it's obvious that the program has gained a positive reputation and our impact will continue to be felt for years to come.
We now have an alumni base of over 300 individuals in the public, private, and not for profit sectors who are making a difference in Cortland County and in our region. Many have served or are now serving on boards and committees in Cortland County. Many have played integral roles in founding new organizations that are making important contributions to our county every day. Others are active in fundraising, while some alumni have been promoted multiple times or taken on new or expanded leadership roles within their own organization.
Thank you to the many key leaders in our community who give up their time to share information and perspectives with the graduates. We also thank those who host us as we visit agencies and businesses throughout the county.
