The Somerset-Pulaski County Chamber of Commerce is recruiting participants for the 2014 Leadership Lake Cumberland program.
We want you !!!
Leadership Lake Cumberland brings together a selected group of people that possess a broad variety of leadership abilities, career accomplishments, and volunteer activities to gain insight into complex issues facing the region.
The goal of the program is to prepare the participants to take an active role in advancing the area for the common good. By fostering understanding of how the region’s issues are interconnected, and by forging new relationships among community and regional leaders, graduates bring a fresh and informed perspective to their communities and companies, serving as important participants in the unified effort to shape Southeast Kentucky’s future.
Through a series of nine monthly, one-day sessions, held in various locations in the region, participants are educated about Southeast Kentucky and its many advantages as well as its challenges. They meet and talk with the region’s current leaders, and through a systematic educational program, explore the region’s economy, education, health and human services, law and justice, and environment.
The Leadership Program, sponsored by the Somerset-Pulaski County Chamber of Commerce, will operate from April through December. The Leadership Class opens with an overnight retreat in April, and then meets one day a month through the conclusion of the program in December. Leadership is a combination of leadership training and community analysis. The program provides training sessions for the participants as well as numerous opportunities to visit community leaders and explore the assets and internal workings of our community.
If you or a co-worker would benefit from this program, please contact the Chamber of Commerce for an application and further information. Due to increased popularity in the Leadership Program, we ask that you contact us as soon as possible to reserve a spot in this year’s class.
