Learn from Park City leaders at Leadership 101

People interested in learning about leadership in Park City next week have an opportunity to hear from the area’s leaders themselves.

The annual Leadership 101 daylong event is scheduled on Wednesday. Organized by the Leadership Park City training program, Leadership 101 offers a rundown of many topics that City Hall, the County Courthouse and others regularly address.

The Leadership 101 schedule includes remarks by figures like Mayor Jack Thomas, Park City Manager Diane Foster and the newly installed Summit County manager, Tom Fisher.

It will be the 18th Leadership 101 event. Myles Rademan, the director of Leadership Park City, said the day will be "kind of like a civics class."

"I think people will get a broad brushstroke," Rademan said.

Some of the highlights include an address by Mayor Jack Thomas, remarks by City Manager Diane Foster and a look at Summit County issues by the county manager. Members of the Summit County Council are also scheduled to attend.
