Tempe, AZ – Tempe Leadership is seeking applicants for their 2014-2015 program, celebrating the 30th anniversary of Tempe Leadership and welcoming prospective members for Class XXX at a March recruitment reception. Anyone interested in applying can get more information and talk with current class members and alumni at the reception planned for Tuesday, March 18 at 5:30 p.m. at The Handlebar, located at 680 South Mill Avenue in Tempe.

Space is limited and registration is required by contacting Courtney McIntyre at the Tempe Chamber of Commerce at CourtneyMcIntyre@tempechamber.org or by calling (480) 967-7891.

 

The Tempe Leadership program runs for nine months, from September to May, and exposes class members to a wide variety of business, cultural, social and civic experiences that enrich their knowledge of Tempe, grow their social network and build their leadership capacity.  “Tempe Leadership had a huge impact on my life,” said Tempe Mayor Mark Mitchell. “It gave me the skill and the confidence that I needed to get more involved in my community and run for office.  One of the reasons of where I am today is because I was involved in Tempe Leadership and Class 15.”

 

Approximately 20 class members are chosen through a competitive process. Applicants must live or work in Tempe and must be a registered voter. Class members are expected to participate fully in the program, which generally requires two days per month, and any additional time needed to complete the class project.  Applications for Class XXX must be submitted by April 25, 2014.

 

Since 1985, more than 700 diverse, dedicated individuals have participated in the Tempe Leadership program.  Our focus is to bring together like-minded individuals in the community to engage and challenge one another, learn more about the ins and outs of Tempe and, most importantly, make a real difference in our community.
