The next Fifth Friday, a powerful networking and learning event that attracts leaders from every sector, will be held on November 30 from 11:30 am to 2 pm at the Stony Hill Inn, Hackensack.
Fifth Friday is hosted by Bergen LEADS, Bergen County’s civic leadership program for adults that is sponsored by the Volunteer Center of Bergen County. Tickets are $35.00 and must be purchased in advance at www.bergenleads.org. For further information, call Amanda Missey at 201-489-9454 Ext. 119.
The featured speaker on November 30 will be Martin Gottlieb, the editor of The Record and Herald News. Mr. Gottlieb will address the question of “What’s News? Who Decides?” In a world where entertainment and hard news are often intertwined, and where politics can color every story, Mr. Gottlieb will discuss how decisions are made regarding editorial content.
Wells Fargo is the presenting sponsor for the 2012 Fifth Friday luncheon series. John Garone, Regional Director of Wells Fargo Private Bank says, “Wells Fargo is a proud supporter of Bergen LEADS because the program encourages civic engagement and the development of solutions to critical issues.
