Workshop on Ashtabula County’s highlights to be held Oct. 26

LEADERship Ashtabula County is offering a one-day, hands-on travel-workshop Oct. 26.

The workshop exposes a newcomer, or a long time county resident, to highlights in Ashtabula County.

Discover the Highlights of Ashtabula County is one of LEADERship Ashtabula County’s core programs.  It provides an opportunity to learn about Ashtabula County with a small group of people in a short period of time. During the daylong tour, participants hear about Ashtabula County’s important issues and opportunities from area leaders in sectors such as government, business, natural resources, and education, and have the opportunity to experience the “behind the scenes” views of some of the area’s highlights.

The day begins early with a continental breakfast, interactive lecturettes and first hand experiences. It involves going places and meeting key players in the county. From glaciers to economic development, from planning to preservation, from railroads to rail trails and much more.

Visits will include a local winery, covered bridge and scenic river, historic Footville, a dairy farm, the county Emergency Management Agency, and a taste of the arts.  Participants come from the public and private sectors. Some are newcomers and others are long-time residents.  

Participants will get an overview of the area from historic, economic, civic, political, cultural and entertainment perspectives.

Cost of the program is $125 per person, $225 per couple.  Group rates are also available.

The program has been designed by LEADERship Ashtabula County graduates taking a little from the best of each of the 10 LEADERship day programs.

Ashtabula Township Fire Chief Mike Fitchet is the 2011 Chairperson. For more information call the LEADERship Office at 998-3888 or e-mail           leadership@suite224.net.  

LEADERship Ashtabula County is in the 25th  year of fulfilling the organization’s mission to encourage, educate, and stimulate individuals to become more familiar with, interested in, and engaged in all facets of civic endeavor.
