Celebration is the theme of April 16 and 21 lunch programs in Powell & Cody

Posted April 7, 2009

POWELL, Wyo. - "Celebrating What's Right in Park County and Beyond" is the April topic for the Northwest College Centers for Training and Development Luncheon Series. They're scheduled Tuesday, April 21, in Cody and Thursday, April 23, in Powell.

The program encourages a new approach to celebrating the opportunities for businesses and other organizations in Park County. It begins with a short video titled "Celebrate What's Right With The World" by Dewitt Jones and wraps up with a presentation by the Park County Leadership planning committee.

Jones is one of America's leading professional photographers. In his 20-year career with National Geographic, he found the creative tools he employed as a photographer had an even deeper application when applied directly to his personal and professional life. Using dialogue and stunning photography, Jones illustrates this approach to life, encouraging others to adopt a practice of vision and celebration. He advances seven key concepts to achieving a sense of what's right with the world.

Viewers will be encouraged to use his concepts in clarifying a vision, both for themselves and their organizations. And they'll be challenged to see the changing realities of doing business in Park County through this lens of new possibilities.

Staying with a new-possibilities theme, the Park County Leadership planning committee will provide an overview and invitation to participate in the upcoming Park County Leadership Institute. Application materials for the 2009 institute will be available for those who are interested.

The one-hour program gets underway in both communities at noon, with networking opportunities starting at 11:45 a.m. The Cody session meets Tuesday, April 21, in Room 2206 of the NWC Cody Center, located in the Park County Complex. In Powell, the group convenes Thursday, April 23, in the Center for Training and Development on the Northwest College West Campus.

Cost is $5 per person, which includes both the program and a lunch.  Seats must be reserved at least one day prior to the event. To make a reservation for the Cody program,  e-mail Janet or call (307) 587-3506. To reserve a spot in Powell, e-mail Stacy or call  (307) 754-6062.
