Timothy G. Scanlon, a partner at Klein DeNatale Goldner was appointed to a two-year term on the Youth Leadership Bakersfield Advisory Council 2011-2013. Appointment to the council is made via nominations by the Nominating Committee of the current advisory council and approval by the Greater Bakersfield Chamber of Commerce.
Youth Leadership Bakersfield is an outgrowth of the community-wide Vision 2020 assessment process, focusing on high school 10-12th graders with untapped leadership potential. The goal is to provide a broad-based platform from which the leaders of tomorrow may emerge. It is a 6 month program for the students, modeled similarly to the adult Leadership Bakersfield program, where once a month students participate in a combination of lectures, panel discussions, and on-site visits.
