Local organizations benefit from professional development program
First National Community Bank (FNCB), locally-based for over 100 years, today announced the 2013 graduating class from its Emerging Leaders program. The Emerging Leaders Program is a year-long employee development course that provides leadership training through creativity and teamwork while making an impact in the community.
As part of the program, participants designed team-based projects aimed at meeting specific needs in the local community. Organizations benefiting from FNCB community service projects included; Dress for Success Luzerne County, Boy Scouts of America, Ronald McDonald House and Luzerne County Head Start.
Overall, graduates volunteered more than 100 hours to their respective organizations.
"Part of our mission as a local bank is giving back to the communities we serve," said Senior Vice President, Human Resources Officer Donald Ryan.
"Since the professional development program started three years ago, our
employees have helped more than a dozen organizations. It a win-win for our
employees and the community, one that we plan to continue for many more years."
The Emerging Leaders program is part of a larger Community Caring initiative. As a true, local community bank, FNCB is making a difference through volunteerism, donations and outreach programs.
