Leadership Wayne Class of 2014 completed their second session, which was facilitated by Tom Shepstone of Shepstone Management.
The 17 participants began their day at the Wayne County Chamber with a discussion on regional economics, housing, land use changes and trends along with major issues facing Wayne County. The group also enjoyed the beautiful autumn weather by touring the northern part of Wayne County with stops at Rybak's Northeast Training Center, the Equinunk Historical Society and enjoyed lunch at The Inn at Starlight Lake. During lunch, the participants heard from Charles Johnston, a large forest owner, regarding the timber industry and Bill desRosiers of Cabot Oil & Gas regarding the natural gas industry.
The Leadership Wayne participants will continue their Wayne County experience and education through June 2014, touching on other important topics such as: Community and Human Services, Education, Economic Development and more.
Leadership Wayne is sponsored by the Wayne County, Pocono Lake Region and Southern Wayne Regional Chambers of Commerce. If you are interested in participating in the next program, please contact the Wayne County Chamber at 570-253-1960.
