This last month, Leadership South County Class V kicked off with a retreat at the Oak Creek Lodge in Santa Margarita. Facilitated by our friends at CultureStoke, it is a time for reflection and connection. We encourage the class to unplug and get comfortably vulnerable as we explore who we are as human beings, leading/learning styles, and many other things that make us leaders in our community. Thank you to our hospitality team: Jocelyn, Ligia, Tony and Anthony for keeping the fire stoked and the class well fed! It was a weekend we will not forget.

A special thanks to our Founding Sponsor PG&E and our other Major Sponsors Dignity Health & Vespera Resort on Pismo Beach for your support. You are what makes this program possible.
