An informational reception from 5 to 7 p.m. next Wednesday will introduce the 10-month Leadership Cattaraugus program to prospective applicants for the 2005 class, to begin in March.
The program began a year ago as a joint effort of the Greater Olean Area Chamber of Commerce, Jamestown Community College (Cattaraugus County Campus), the Rehabilitation Center and St. Bonaventure University. The inaugural Class of 2004, expected to graduate Dec. 14, is winding up its sessions on topics such as economic development, education, government, human services and health care.
Participants, who must submit applications and are screened by a selection committee, learn leadership skills and network with community leaders, paying $1,200 tuition.
The reception will be held in the ReHabilitation Center, 1439 Buffalo St. For more information about Leadership Cattaraugus, call 376-7570 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
