Leadership Tuolumne County, a program of the Tuolumne County Chamber of Commerce, is a
community-wide effort to ensure a solid base of informed and effective leaders to meet and address the
present and future challenges which face Tuolumne County.
Our goals are clear:
Through a series of Topic Days, participants will meet the experts and key-decision makers in areas of vital concern to Tuolumne County. The class will become widely informed about issues of importance they normally might not have the opportunity to explore.
Leadership Tuolumne County (LTC) consists of a mandatory opening retreat, eight monthly topic day sessions (one each month) from October through May, completion of a community service project, and a graduation and recognition ceremony. Each of the eight topic days explores and analyzes an area of interest or concern in the community. Topics include Government; Law & Justice; Education; Business & the Economy; Media & Communications; Arts, Culture & Quality of Life; Environment & Land Use; and Health & Human Services.
Applications for Leadership Tuolumne County are solicited from interested persons throughout the
community. Written applications are used to identify those persons most likely to benefit from the
program and to invest their knowledge and experience in the years ahead in Tuolumne County.
The process is intended to result in a cross-section of men and women from business, government, community services, and other sectors represented in Tuolumne County.
The tuition fee for the Leadership Tuolumne County program is $750.00 which covers all costs including the retreat. It is anticipated that most employers of program participants will underwrite tuition costs.
