The 2020 Class of Leadership Marco is underway. The group participated in their first day of activities which included a team-building scavenger hunt. The class was divided into groups and sent scurrying to find the items on their list and return them to the Chamber of Commerce offices.
This year’s participants include Melissa Blazier, Melissa Davidson, Justin Duran, David Everitt, Barbara Hess, Logan Jones, Jim Richards, Sally Richards, Dina Schleifer, Jessica Simon, Linda Turner, Christine Waldren, Cameron Woodward and Laurie Zoerb.
The day concluded with a cocktail reception at the Island Country Club. The class was welcomed by Dianna Dohm, Donna Niemczyk and Katie O’Hara, Chamber staff. Graduates from last year’s Leadership Marco class were on hand. Their task is to organize events for this year’s class.
A resounding sentiment from anyone who has participated in this class, “no matter how seasoned you are, no matter how well you think you KNOW Marco Island, or how long you have lived here, this behind-the-scenes class will teach you a great many things about the island you didn’t know.”
The next two Leadership sessions include History Day and Media Day.
