Scottsdale Leadership 25 Anniversity Kick-Off Party

I attended Scottsdale Leadership's 25 Anniversary Kick-off Party last night. The event was sponsored by and hosted at the fabulous W hotel.  I'm a graduate of the Scottsdale Leadership Program (Class XXII Tried and True). Most Major cities have a Leadership Pprogram. Scottsdale's is a 9 month program. You have to participate every Friday all day for the entire nine months. The application and interview process is strenuous. The program is structured around Core Programs. You might have a luxury tour of the city, which is unusual because it is long and narrow in land mass. Another day is spent with the fire and police  department. (My daughter did her report on her hero (Ya Me!) in full fighters gear. I don't know how they do it, I nearly fell over when they put the oxygen tank on me. The aim of the program is to get you up to speed on the history, movers and shakers and to motivate you to take an active part in moving the city forward through leadership and volunteerism.

Now back to the party. Scottsdale Leadership will be 25 years old in 2011 the party was to kick-off and raise awareness of this fact and to announce the featured speaker . Yours truly was on the planning committee not knowing she was on the hook for nine months. LOL

The event went off beautifully and the featured speaker will be announced on December 10 at the Scottsdale Leadership Awards Program.
