A Big Year for Emerging Leaders

Kristina Schuett

As the United Way staff liaison for Emerging Leaders, I am so excited for 2013. Not only is 2013 the 90th anniversary of United Way California Capital Region, it is also full of possibility for Emerging Leaders. The Emerging Leaders Leadership Council, comprised of Emerging Leaders volunteers, has been busy planning another year of fabulous events for Emerging Leaders to get connected to our community.

In 2013, be on the lookout for new and exciting ways to get involved – from volunteer opportunities with United Way’s Community Impact projects, to career development workshops and social and networking events.

We are kicking off the year with our 2nd Annual Cocktails & Ballet: Flappers & Fellas – A Rip Roaring 20’s Soiree on January 31st. The night will be full of mixing, mingling and even a sneak peek performance of the Great Gatsby by the Sacramento Ballet. This is a night that you don’t want to miss!

There is sure to be plenty of ways to get involved this year with Emerging Leaders and I can’t wait to see all of you throughout the year! Of course, the first way to get involved this year is to become a member of Emerging Leaders, if you haven’t already. Be sure to stay connected by liking us on Facebook, following us on Twitter or by signing up to receive Emerging Leaders updates.
