Dear Leadership Stockton Supporter,
As Leadership Stockton ventures into its 38th year, we continue to seek out opportunities to improve and enhance California’s oldest and most successful community leadership program. This can be successful with your help and sense of responsibility to the program from which you so proudly graduated.
Leadership Stockton has produced over 870 graduates during its first 37 years of excellence in our community. Further, Leadership Stockton has demonstrated that participants grow in their understanding of the community and their ability to be effectively engaged as citizen leaders. Our community has benefited by the influx of new leaders who are knowledgeable and committed to positive change. Employers have gained by increasing their visibility and by having their staff members apply new skills to the workplace, establish new and helpful business relationships, and engage more fully in the community.
As you can see below only a fraction of businesses/organizations (with LS graduates) and a few wonderful Friends of Leadership Stockton have been steadfastly loyal to the Leadership Program, for which I thank them.
As one of the founders of the program I am proud of those who have not forgotten that their success, in part, is due to their time spent in Leadership Stockton, the knowledge they gained and the lifelong friends and associates they attained! I wholeheartedly believe that an important part of being a successful leader is that each of you MUST help to continue the ongoing evolution of supporting strong and educated future leaders for our community through the Leadership Stockton Program.
I would hope that this year and on an ongoing basis you, as I do, will help in any way you can.
If you need any additional information, please contact Timm Quinn at (209) 292-8423 or visit www.LeadershipStockton.com.
Thank you for your consideration and respect of Leadership Stockton and your prompt and generous response!
