August 14 is the deadline for applications for the 2011 class of Leadership Big Bend.
The mission of Leadership Big Bend is to develop leaders for the tri-county region. We do that by identifying those persons who want to be involved in the economic and community development of this area.
Leadership Big Bend provides a unique perspective of the Big Bend area and helps participants become more knowledgeable about Brewster, Jeff Davis, and Presidio counties. Learning about the area’s needs encourages participants to discover solutions for meeting those needs.
One of the most important aspects of Leadership Big Bend is the establishment of a network of community and area leaders. Challenges facing the Big Bend area can be met more easily when people get to know one other and learn skills to help them work together to accomplish their goals.
Nominees for Leadership Big Bend are solicited from businesses, professional groups, agencies, institutions, civic groups, and interested individuals. The Admissions Committee selects 15 participants for each class.
Applications are available online at http://www.leadershipbigbend.org/application.pdf. They should be postmarked no later than August 14, 2010, and sent to PO Box 242, Alpine TX 79831 for consideration for the 2011 class. Contact Kathy Bork (386-3551; email@example.com) for more information.
