You have been elected president of the Junior League.  Or, maybe you are the long-term leader of a civic organization, your sorority's alumnae chapter president or chairman of the fundraising team.


Regardless of the role, hundreds are looking for you to lead with poise, grace, refinement and a level of social intelligence that brings credibility and results to your organization.


Your challenges are many. In the civic and social arena, your meetings must be effective and memorable, in order to keep members motivated.


You must keep your members united and energized.  You must select keynote speakers who will mesmerize guests attending your luncheons and specials.


And, as the primary representative, your etiquette skills must be flawless.

Today's social climate is far different from the days of old, when "best intentions" were enough.  


In the 21st century, civic and social leaders must do more.  You are expected to understand and display basic rules of etiquette, have the emotional intelligence to keep members energized and focused on your vision,  and to host meetings, special events and activities with savvy and social grace.
