WARRENTON - City Manager Scott Derickson is slated to participate in next month's Portland State University Legacy Leadership Training Program Sept. 9 to 14.

"The Legacy Program is well known across the state as one of Oregon's most effective leadership training opportunities," Derickson said. "It is designed to assist participants in using their leadership assets to transform individuals and collective visions into institutional and policy legacies that enrich our state and local systems of democratic governances and their service to citizens."

The Legacy Program focuses on four specific areas: individual leadership, group/teamwork, organization skills and community solutions.

"The tuition to the Legacy Program is $2,485, which includes lodging and meals. There may also be an opportunity for a small scholarship," added Derickson.
