By Meg Moss – Sanford Chamber Executive Director
The Chamber Leadership Sanford program began in 1999 and was developed to provide a continuous, diverse supply of creative leaders to our community by developing participants’ knowledge of the region and providing them the opportunity for meaningful action.
The Leadership Sanford program begins this September and runs until June. Participants meet one day per month though out the nine-month program. The sessions give participants an in-depth look at a range of topics of community interest and importance by experts and community leaders. Topics are designed to provide both personal development and community enrichment.
Some of the objectives of the program:
- Select highly qualified potential and emerging leaders who are most likely to give to the community through service and have the potential to assume expanded responsibility
- To provide participants with the knowledge necessary to create a deeper understanding of our community and the boards
- participate in community work
- Offer their services in government and non-profit organizations
