2009 Leadership Class

Developing Leaders For Our Community’s Future

In dynamic sessions held one Friday a month, September through June, participants learn about issues of vital concern to their city; and learn how they can effectively shape the future of their community, their organization or their business.  The focus of each session is not on specific political viewpoints; rather, a number of alternative views are presented from experts in the given areas.
Sessions generally run from 8am until 3pm.  A continental breakfast and lunch are provided.

We invite those individuals seeking to challenge themselves by becoming more educated and involved in their community. 
Enrollment is limited to 40 individuals. Completed applications are due back to the Chamber no later than Friday, August 30th, 2013
Tuition for the program is $1,000.00, due by the first class day.
Class members must not miss more than 2 classes to graduate from program.
