The Leadership Corvallis board decided unanimously to move forward with a virtual cohort for the 2020/2021 class. Board member Amy Yardley and the LC curriculum committee have designed a live, web-based program that will span 10 monthly sessions beginning in September.
Each monthly session will be held on the 2nd Thursday of each month (except June, which will be the 1st Thursday) and begin at either 9am or 1pm depending on the curriculum for that session, and run between 1 and 3 hours.
This new online format will provide the class ample opportunities to connect with leaders across our community and gain a deeper understanding of the business community, our local governments and the critical social services that make Corvallis one of the top communities in the country to live and work in. Expect an engaging mix of live panel interviews, group discussions and small-group breakout chats each month.
Session content will include an abbreviated version of the standard Leadership Corvallis curriculum, and brand new elements designed to help emerging leaders understand and navigate the affects of COVID-19, as well as engage in the evolving conversation around racial justice, diversity and equity in our community.
Registration is $50 per person – class size is limited to 50. Several individual individuals and organizations have provided scholarship funds to ensure everyone who wants to participate, can.
Leadership Corvallis is a volunteer, alumni-driven leadership program that provides a broad experience to engaged participants on how the community functions, and to prepare them through education and inspiration to actively shape the destiny of our area.
