North Lake Tahoe-Truckee Leadership Program Graduates 24 More Leaders

May 31, 2022

The North Lake Tahoe-Truckee Leadership Program has successfully completed its 18th year by graduating 24 strong, smart leaders. 

The Leadership Program creates an opportunity for potential leaders to broaden their understanding of the region and its issues, challenges, and opportunities; while honing and developing their leadership skills. Since 2004, the program has graduated over 430 individuals.

As part of the five-month program, participants worked on Action Plans designed to enhance some aspect of local community life. These Action Plans are intended to provide the framework to allow for real-world changes in the community. Through interviews, surveys, and research, teams developed a program rationale, a needs assessment, proposed budget, timeline, community collaborations, and promotional packet. The results of these projects were presented during the final day workshop.  This year the projects were: Truckee Dark Sky Program, Truckee Gear Library, Rewilding Truckee Tahoe, Garbage Game, and Good Neighbor Program.  Several of these projects are templates that can be used in many different areas of our community.

The Leadership Program is honored to be facilitated by our long-time Director of Education, Shannon Beets.  Shannon continues to bring her leadership expertise to the program in a unique and dynamic style. 

Sponsors and Location Hosts of the 2022 Leadership Program included Rotary Club of Truckee and the Town of Truckee

Scholarships were generously funded by the Rotary Club of Tahoe City, Kiwanis Club of North Lake Tahoe, Sustainable Community Advocates, Soroptimist International of Truckee Donner, Truckee Chamber, North Lake Tahoe Resort Association, and Theresa May Duggan of Duggan and Duggan.  Information about the program, sponsorships and scholarship support can be found on

The North Lake Tahoe-Truckee Leadership Program is a collaborative project of three Founding Partners:  The North Tahoe Business Association, North Lake Tahoe Resort Association, and the Truckee Chamber of Commerce.  We are privileged to have Shannon Beets as our Facilitation Partner/Director of Education, and the Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation as their Fiscal Partner.
