PORTSMOUTH, N.H., Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Calypso Communications, one of the only truly integrated, full-service public relations, marketing, and graphic design firms in Northern New England, has renewed its leadership sponsorship of Leadership Seacoast, a non-profit organization that develops informed and active community leaders, for the 2013 program year beginning in January.
"Calypso has been a long-time sponsor of Leadership Seacoast—from in-kind services to monetary donations," said Jennifer Wheeler, executive director of Leadership Seacoast. "The firm's support allows us to provide content-rich programming to our members so that they can discover the connections among the many issues facing our region."

After an objective and extensive review of all candidates, the Leadership Seacoast Board of Directors admitted 36 individuals, each of whom will bring a unique set of skills to the interactive program. The class of 2013 kicks off its program year on January 9, 2013 with its annual day-long retreat at the Browne Center for Innovative Learning in Durham, New Hampshire.
