Dr. Peter Tarlow to Address Need for Community Leaders

August 27, 2012

[LIBERTY] – Styles may differ, but all effective communities have dynamic leaders who can articulate a successful vision for the future – and organize ways to get things done.  International expert Dr. Peter Tarlow will explore the issue of leadership at Sullivan Renaissance’s next seminar on Wednesday, September 5 at 7:00 p.m. in the CVI Center in Liberty.  Everyone is welcome to attend.

Dr. Peter Tarlow is an international consultant on the positive effects of community beautification, who has been working with communities in Sullivan County for the past two years.  He is an ordained rabbi; a professor in the Humanities Division of Texas A&M University; and a specialist in tourism, economic development and the impact of crime and terrorism on the tourism industry.  He is the founder and president of Tourism & More, Inc. and also serves as the Executive Director of the Texas Chapter of the Travel and Tourism Research Association.

“Sullivan Renaissance isn’t simply about beautification – and beautification isn't simply planting flowers or creative landscaping.  It is a call to develop strong community ties and enhance interpersonal communications skills,” Dr. Peter Tarlow said.

Dr. Tarlow’s fluency in many languages enables him to speak throughout the world.  He lectures frequently on current and future trends in the tourism industry, rural tourism, economic development, the gaming industry, issues of crime and terrorism, the role of police departments in economic development, and international trade. 

Pre-registration is requested.  Refreshments will be provided.  For more information or to register, contact Sullivan Renaissance at or 845-295-2445.

Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation.  Sponsors include Bold Gold Media Group/Thunder 102, FisherMears Associates, Kristt Company, Robert Green Dealerships, Sullivan County Democrat, The River Reporter, Thompson Sanitation and WSUL/WVOS.
