St. Johns County District 1 Commissioner, Cyndi Stevenson, and Jason Cleghorn from the county’s Growth Management department, have been selected to attend the 2010 Regional Leadership Academy through the Northeast Florida Regional Council.
The Academy educates Regional Leaders and invests in the future of regional communities through a mission to make Northeast Florida a better place to live and work through a series of programs covering topics like Equity, Diversity, Land use, Quality of Life, Emergency Preparedness, Housing, Healthcare, Transportation, Environment, Water resources, Economic Development and Regional Visioning.
Commissioner Stevenson and Jason Cleghorn were selected from a group of very well qualified candidates to attend the Academy this year.
The Regional Leadership Series is for those with a sincere commitment and motivation to serve the Regional community.
It is for participants who have the willingness to invest the time and energy required and have the ability to make arrangements to attend the required programs.
The RLS is for leaders representing business (large and small), education, nonprofits, agriculture, government, healthcare, elected officials, and media.
In short, the Regional Leadership Series is for anyone who understands the importance of Regionalism and is committed to Regional visioning and growth for the betterment of our communities.
“Congratulations to both of them,” said County Administrator Michael D. Wanchick in his bi-weekly report.
