Those who work and/or live in Tempe are invited you a very special gathering this week to find out more about the Tempe Leadership program and whether this year might be the right year for you to apply.
The recruitment reception for Class XXXIII will be held on Wednesday, April 12th from 5:00-7:00pm at the Tempe Mission Palms Hotel, located at 60 E. 5th Street in Tempe. The event is free, although your RSVP is strongly encouraged so we can be sure to have everything you need on hand. Light snacks and a cash bar will be available. It’s a great opportunity to spend time socializing with our alumni, board members and current class members to learn about our program and how it might benefit you.
The Tempe Leadership program typically has more applicants than than spaces available in any given class and class members are chosen through an application and interview process. People who graduate from Tempe Leadership develop lifelong friendships and a dedicated network of alumni that are there to support you in everything from businesses endeavors to personal setbacks and successes.
So what exactly is Tempe Leadership? We are a program of the Tempe Chamber of Commerce Foundation. Each year, we take a cohort of individuals through our nine-month program to learn about Tempe, everything from police and fire, human services, business, sports, education, the arts, local government and more. We offer a variety of leadership opportunities, hands-on experiences and interaction with high-profile local leaders who are experts in their field. This year, we also implemented a year-long personal leadership curriculum designed to help each class member identify and develop their own personal leadership qualities, what it means to be a leader and how to work and interact with a variety of leadership styles. While our program is about personal development, its also about knowing and experiencing your community more fully, making key contacts across a variety of sectors, and identifying and using your unique gifts to make our community a better place.
Applications are currently open and we invite you to apply! The deadline for applications is May 3, 2017.
