Dear Big Canoe Property Owner:
The purpose of Leadership Big Canoe is to provide specific education and hands-on training for potential community leaders in a volunteer environment. Opportunities for class participation are an important part of each class. Each class member will participate in a project that is selected by the class members during the first two months — these projects are designed to address issues, problems or concerns in the community and develop innovative solutions to improve the Big Canoe living experience. Previous class projects made contributions in areas such as Governance, 911 Dual Address Resolution, Front Gate Evaluation, Volunteer Fairs and Aging In Place. Many of these projects have been continued to resolution or implementation by the HOA, POA and/or Big Canoe Chapel. Classes meet in the Dogwood Room at the Sconti Clubhouse from 8:45 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and include lunch. A modest $45 fee is charged to cover meeting expenses, including refreshments — lunches are paid by participants at each class. The 2012–13 schedule for the 8th class is shown below:
Perhaps the best indicator of the quality of the program comes from some of the comments of the 165 graduates of the program’s previous seven classes.
The application process for the eighth class of this comprehensive leadership education program has closed with 24 participants. If you missed this year’s class, please mark your calendar for the opening of the next class in July 2013. You qualify to participate if you have owned property in Big Canoe for more than 12 months, are 21 years of age (or older!), in good standing with the POA, and willing to serve as a volunteer for at least two years within Big Canoe or the surrounding communities following graduation. Current volunteer service will count toward this requirement.
If you would like to speak to any graduates of Leadership Big Canoe to help you decide whether to sign up, or if you are interested in pursuing this interesting and rewarding course, please contact any of the LBC board members listed on the Contact Us page. Join us for an interesting, rewarding and fun experience and make some new friends in the process.
Leadership Big Canoe is jointly sponsored by Big Canoe LLC, the POA, the HOA and Big Canoe Chapel.
