Leadership Genesee looking for local groups that need help

By Howard B. Owens

Press release:

The Leadership Genesee Class of 2012 is issuing a Request for Proposals (RFP) for local groups and organizations that are in need of assistance.

Leadership Genesee is a yearlong experiential leadership program of the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Genesee County that has been equipping community members to be well informed community stewards since 2001. With more than 250 graduates to date, alumni include many community leaders, local executives and business leaders.

Since the group is focused on improving the quality of life for the residents of Genesee County, the Class of 2012 has decided to “roll up their sleeves” and offer assistance to local not-for-profits that serve the community.

Peggy Marone, executive director of the program, feels the class has much to offer.

“We have 27 dedicated, intelligent, and involved citizens that are willing to lend their talents to help make our community a better place to live,” Marone said.

The group is seeking input from 501(c )3 agencies that need assistance with marketing efforts, business planning or other issues.
