1.4 Million Reasons to Celebrate 25 Years!

This weekend, we celebrated 25 years of The LeaderShape Institute with so many participants, cluster facilitators, lead facilitators, guest leaders, and family.

It was a glorious evening and wonderful celebration with 240 of our closest friends.

The LeaderShape staff was able to go through our archives and provide historical pictures, documents, and letters to share our founding and growth that were put on display at the 25th Gala.

A t-shirt wall of dozens of past session t-shirts over the last 25 years displayed the richness and diversity of sessions.

Joe Cimino's "I am LeaderShape" video was shown as the chosen winner to our YouTube contest with over 1100 votes cast. Joe is a current student from St. John Fisher College. To see Joe's winning video, please click here.

We enjoyed the fellowship and friendship with all of those who were able to attend and with all of those who helped us celebrate by wearing your t-shirt, sending in pictures, posting on our Facebook fan page, retweeting our tweets, or sharing with a friend or colleague the impact that the program had on you. We all can share in our collective success!

We are so very proud to announce that the board alone has personally committed $1.4 million toward LeaderShape's 25th anniversary campaign! This is an incredible gesture of leadership!

The board invites you to become involved with our 25th anniversary campaign by contacting our President, Paul Pyrz, at 800.900.LEAD (5323) or by email at lead@leadershape.org or by donating here online. We invite you join us to make our next 25 years even better!
