Finger Lakes Leadership
Finger Lakes Leadership is a program sponsored by the Geneva Area Chamber of Commerce, Canandaigua Chamber of Commerce, and the Seneca County Chamber of Commerce. The program is designed to identify, educate, and motivate a select group of individuals who live and/or work in the area for growth and positions of workplace and community leadership. Participants are selected on the basis of ability, leadership potential, educational background, work experience, interest in the community, willingness to commit the time and energy to complete the program and have the full support of the corporation or organization they represent.

The 2013 Finger Lakes Leadership class project is a buy local campaign that will highlight area businesses throughout Seneca and Ontario Counties. This year’s participants have developed a lesson plan and will be presenting in three area middle school classrooms to promote the value in buying local products and supporting local businesses. This curriculum will include the purchase, distribution and sampling of local goods highlighting the Canandaigua, Geneva and Seneca County region. Remaining funds will be used to develop a Finger Lakes Leadership Scholarship that will afford an employee from an area business the opportunity to participate in the 2013-2014 Finger Lakes Leadership program.
