Fifteen members of the 10-month Leadership Tri-County program graduated last Thursday, writes Donna Rovins for The Times Herald.

The program was introduced in 1993 and has already graduated over 200 community members through the support of the TriCounty Area Chamber of Commerce Foundation. Before the graduation ceremony, class members presented their completed projects at the TriCounty Area Chamber of Commerce membership breakfast in Pottstown.

“Its mission is to sustain community participation and involvement by training and providing new and emerging leaders to be able to go out and serve on nonprofit boards,” said Kitty Papp, program director and 2008 Leadership Tri-County graduate.

Nonprofit organizations from the area submit a project where they need help as they do not have the staff or resources to complete it themselves. Members of Leadership Tri-County class then split into teams to decide who will take which project on.

“Once they have finished working on their projects, they go out and serve on the board of directors of a nonprofit,” said Papp.
