A Workshop for Leaders
Since 1988 the Greater Orange County CEC has
conducted a leadership workshop (leadershop)
to focus on the roles and responsibilities of
chapter leaders and services to members. This
year’s workshop will include presentations on
membership development, leadership strategies,
strategic planning, organizational benefits,
effective meetings, and others. This workshop
will replicate the recent seminar conducted in
Virginia for CEC leaders.
CEC Chapter 188, Orange County, was granted its
charter on April 12, 1956, and will celebrate
its 60th anniversary during the 2015
– 2016 school year. This year’s workshop will
focus on leadership strategies that define CEC
membership. You can be a vital part of this
process and are cordially invited to attend.
This important leadership activity is being
offered at no cost to members, prospective new
members, and invited guests. Student members
are encouraged to attend.
Morning refreshments will be provided Saturday
morning at 8:00 with sessions to convene at
9:00. Lunch will also be provided. A wrap
up/evaluation session will conclude the seminar
at 4:00 pm. When registering please include
information of any special dietary needs.
