Chamber accepting applications for Leadership Champaign County program
The Champaign County Chamber of Commerce extends an invitation to community members to apply for their leadership development program, Leadership Champaign County. The program encourages participants to broaden their perspectives, enhance their leadership skills, and learn from other leaders who are active in the community. Participants gain knowledge and skills that are necessary to be an effective leader in their community and within their organization.
The Leadership Champaign County program offers participants in-depth, “behind the scenes” looks at local government, education, and healthcare, among other exclusive opportunities. Participants tour farms, factories, and other local facilities while learning from business owners and community leaders about a wide range of topics. Hands-on activities throughout the program sessions encourage group collaboration and leadership development.
The program meets the third Thursday of every month from September - May. Each full-day session features a different topic; topics include Agriculture, History and Heritage, Education, Economic Development, Government, Healthcare, and Quality of Life.
Applications are available on the Chamber’s website and will be accepted through September 5. Interested parties are encouraged to contact the Chamber with any questions by calling 937-653-5764.
The class of 2019 graduated in May and contributed “Little Free Libraries”, a self-guided walking tour of Scioto Street, a county bike route, and a community photo bank among other community service projects.
