Here’s my email to Leadership Reno County alumni, sent out on 11/12/13:
Good Morning. I was asked to write another brief word from the Leadership Reno County Alumni Association (we’re also on Facebook: LRC Alumni). As you know, many of you reading this weekly email at one point went through the Leadership Hutch or, as it was later (and currently) called, the Leadership Reno County program. What is Leadership Reno County about? Well, like I’ve said before, that would be an interesting discussion, but one theme that emerges for me is equipping leaders in Reno County to make progress on issues that we care about deeply. Many of you are in the trenches, behind the scenes, working to make our community a better place. Leadership Reno County exists to help you make progress in your difficult work.
A new class for the winter and spring is in the process of filling up. As is usually the case when we are preparing for a new class, we are facing immediate needs for scholarships for our program. The Alumni Association would like to encourage you to join them by renewing your membership before the end of the year. This will ensure membership through next year and it will help our community by enabling others to make progress in their work. You, most of all, probably recognize the change factor that comes once you’ve gone through the LRC program and, therefore, you will want to be a part of this opportunity. Therefore, would you please send a $25 membership renewal fee payable to “Leadership Reno County Alumni Association” to the following address: Debbie Cowl, Treasurer
