June 2019 Educational Resources Update!

Leadership Cayuga

The Leadership Cayuga Class of 2019 certainly finished strong! We held our annual Project Presentations at the beginning of May and each group brought forth innovative and well-researched ideas. They tackled community problems like youth programming, an app for tourism, community involvement, and the environment. Each of these can be viewed on our page.

We also sent these wonderful graduates into the world with a luncheon at Euterpe Hall on May 30th. Cheered on by family, friends, employers and now fellow alumni we celebrated their accomplishments and launched them into the community with valuable knowledge and new friendships.

We are now recruiting for the Class of 2020 that will start in September and run monthly through the end of May. A program conducted by the Cayuga County Chamber of Commerce, Leadership Cayuga stimulates public-minded thinking and increases the base of informed, capable leaders committed to using their talents to add to our community’s vitality. The program’s more than 600 alumni are among the most informed volunteers in Cayuga County.
