Leadershop – 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.

Please register by September 5, 2015.
