Event Description:

What is the Southwest Metro Leadership Program?
It’s a 9-month community engagement program designed to      develop leadership skills, gain awareness of the Southwest Metro community, create a network of informed leaders and encourage greater involvement in the community. 

Who Should Attend?
This program is ideal for the rising star in your organization. It sends a clear message that your business values their  employees & is committed to developing the next generation of community leaders.  It is also great for someone who is new to our community to expedite their learning curve.

What will I learn?
Each month’s topic is presented through the insights of prominent individuals from the public and private sectors, in-depth discussion of current issues pertinent to the session topic, site visits, and  interactive experiences. Back home applications are part of each session. Participants  also work in teams on projects of their own design to support a non-profit or community cause. 

What is the Commitment?
Participants need to attend at least 7 of the 9 sessions to graduate from the program. There are no make-up sessions.  Each session is approximately four hours. 

How do I apply and how much is it?
Tuition for the Leadership program is $550.00 per participant for current Chamber members & $650.00 for non-members.  Tuition covers monthly sessions, speakers, meals and materials. A limited number of scholarships are available to those not able to pay the full tuition. Registration is limited & tuition is due by September 1. 

Not only will you hear from around 30 speakers, you'll visit around 17 different community sites for your sessions.
