North Marin Water District

On behalf of the Leadership Novato Partners and the Novato Chamber Board of Directors, we would like to cordially invite you to attend the 2019 Leadership Novato Graduation.

The Class of 2019 has accomplished much over the past year. Local teams, comprised of business-people, community members, and more are being honored for their commitment to the community.

Our Graduation Ceremony offers teams the opportunity to showcase all they have accomplished over the past year. To summarize, the Class of 2019 has raised over $40,000 dollars for local projects surrounding education. Many teams have contributed to Novato's much-needed housing stock. In another sense, they are planning regional events that aim to energize the art's community. As a result, they have invested time and energy to helping Novato residents appreciate their outdoor spaces.

All things considered, please join us as we honor the future leaders of the community.

OUTCOMES

Our very own Marin MOCA received high survey response rates from a county-wide survey which led to ongoing efforts to create a county-wide event to focus on the visual arts. 

Marin MOCA and members of LN Team Burdell are organizing an event that will aim to bring guests and community out to appreciate the visual arts in Hamilton. Similarly, Marin MOCA will be implementing the recommendations in the form of NEW events & workshops.
