The Weatherford Chamber was pleased with the success of the inaugural Leadership Weatherford class. From the initial overnight retreat where the bonding began with the group of individuals to the final graduation, the program allowed the participants to learn more about their community and what takes place behind the scenes. Many of those participating have become more involved and that is beneficial to all concerned.
With this success, we are now planning for the next class. Applications are available online and at the Chamber office. Companies that are sending personnel need to understand there is a commitment to attend each of the meetings every month. Individuals must realize they are making a commitment to be engaged in the program from start to finish. It is that commitment that makes the program a success.
Each month is dedicated to a different educational experience. It is our goal to help future community leaders and provide an avenue for participants to get involved. Participants will develop valuable contacts and communication networks with our community. Most importantly, Leadership Weatherford builds confidence and motivation to become involved in the community.
The class will be limited to 15-20 participants. If you are interested, please complete an application and turn it into the Chamber office by August 21st. A committee will then look over the applications and interviews will be set up with those applying. The retreat will be September 25th & 26th to kick off the new class!
