Leadership Columbia is a highly regarded annual program of the Chamber, designed to identify, cultivate and motivate community leaders. Leadership Columbia will run from January – June 2019, and each session will incorporate leadership skill building, while also providing in-depth exposure to local community issues and industry areas, ranging from healthcare, education, economic development, media, local government, social services, and more. This program is beneficial to those who are looking to work on their leadership proficiencies and style, develop meaningful community relationships, and want to expand their knowledge of what resources our community has to offer. Each year, 30 professionals are selected from a pool of applicants to participate in this program. The Steering Committee strives to select Chamber members representing all segments of our community. Co-Chairs for the Class of 2019 are Marsha Carter, Shelter Insurance Companies and David Whelan, Commerce Bank. Applications will be released via the Chamber website and emails in mid-September and due back in mid-October.
