Leadership Novato Advisory Committee

Thanks to the dedication of the Leadership Novato Advisory Committe, the Novato Chamber's Leadership Novato Program remains one of the North Bay's most premier civic leadership programs. The LNAC  throughout the year, works to provide a strong, challenging and dynamic experience to the students. The LNAC meets regularly and as incorporated itselt into the Leadership Novato Curriculum itself! Students from the various "teams" report to the LNAC and learn how to work on a committee. This experience is invaluable for students who may seek positions on future commissions, boards or nonprofits. During the off season, the LNAC works on recruitment, class curriculum, volunteer coordination. and more. If you have any interested in working with the LNAC please contact Victoria Worch, Director of Leadership Novato
