Community Involvement: Leadership Cape Cod

Melissa Kolcz |

Our connection with our community is deeply important to every member on our team. We all have different passions but we are committed to giving back to the local community. Throughout the year, we will be highlighting various non-profits that our team is involved with, in hopes to collaborate together and raise awareness.

This month's featured non-profit is Leadership Cape Cod. Melissa Kolcz, Client Experience Manager, is on the Leadership Cape Cod Alumni & Community Engagement Committee and a 2015 graduate of the Community Leadership Institute of Cape Cod. Michaela Herlihy, President & Owner, is also a 2013 graduate of the Community Leadership Institute of Cape Cod and a former Board Member.

Leadership Cape Cod's mission is to develop and connect a diverse cohort of leaders to foster an engaged, sustainable and inclusive Cape Cod. This year the organization will celebrate 30 years of community leadership development. The CLI program has been so successful that the organization has decided to offer more programs and services to people, businesses and community organizations.
