The Board of Directors of Leadership Knoxville, Inc., is accepting nominations for its 2011 class, which will run from August 2010 – June 2011. Frank Rothermel, President of Denark Construction and Leadership Knoxville Board member, will chair the selection committee. Deadline for submission is Friday, Feb. 26.

The 2011 class will be Leadership Knoxville’s twenty-seventh. Started in 1985, the program equips around 45 area leaders each year with important information about the community and region, along with skills to enhance their leadership abilities. Over 1,000 people have participated in the program since its inception.

The committee is seeking nominations from business, government, education, religion, the arts, the professions, civic and community organizations. Nominees may live in Knox and all contiguous counties, should be community minded, and should demonstrate leadership capabilities. If selected for the program, participants will be required to participate in monthly day-long sessions, and occasional two-day sessions. Tuition is $2,500 for the year-long program, but partial scholarship assistance may be available.

Nominations may be made online. Nominators must provide the candidates name and email address. The candidates will in-turn receive an electronic application to submit for consideration in the class.

The 2011 class will be announced in early June.
