Leadership Novato Calendar
Session Presentation - Legacy of Knowledge

Do you think students would gain valuable insight and knowledge from your experience? Consider being a guest lecturer or presenter becasue your insight is real and valuable. Also, depending on the subject matter, (and where it would fit into the cuuriculum of the program) your agency or business could get valuable representation in front of the next generation of North Bay leaders.

Team Projects - a Lasting Legacy
Get that community support you need to launch your project
Each of the Leadership Novato team must complete a community service project in order to successfully complete the program. In order to give our students real-world experience, projects are selected from submitted Request for Projects. Projects are submitted to the Novato Chamber via the RFP Submission form; if a particular RFP is chosen, a Leadership Novato team will work to assist with the completion of that project. Projects are a lasting community legacy in the community. similarly, projects should aim to be a commuity benefit.
Donate & Support the Class - Daily Legacy
SWAG is a great way to support the class; water bottles, bags etc all will be used at each of the sessions.
Your business can gain valuable spotlight by supporting the program financially. The various levels of sponsorship or donation allow your businesses to participate at whichever level you feel most comfortable. While some businesses sponsored by 'hosting a day" others donate SWAG and help keep their message strong throughout and beyond the length of the 9-month program.
Donate & Support a Student - Lifelong Legacy
We do our best to accomidate the needs of students
Because of the generosity of some local donors, most students are able to take advantage of the Chamber's Leadership Program. As a result our program becomes more acccesable to the public. Your business can sponsor a specific student, an employee or volunteer in your ranks, or you can support a random student through our Scholarship Program. We do our best to work with all students who are serious about advancing themselves civically in our community.
