Bergen LEADS is Hosting Open Houses for Interested Candidates

Do you want to do more to make your community – and Bergen County – a better place in which to live and work? Bergen LEADS, the County’s premier civic leadership program, is a great way to start. Now in its third year, we are recruiting candidates for the Class of 2011.

Bergen LEADS alumni and class members are hosting several free, informational Open Houses for prospective applicants. Each session will give applicants the opportunity to speak with current students, alumni and program staff about the seminar year, curriculum, application process, tuition and financial assistance, and benefits to the participants. The events provide interested applicants the opportunity to find out about the program first-hand from the people that are directly involved with Bergen LEADS.

To date, nine Open Houses have been scheduled, including:

1) Thurs., Feb. 18, Meadowlands Regional Chamber in Rutherford, 8:15-10:00am
