Deadline nears for county leadership program
The final call is out for enrollment in the 2007 LeadershipPlenty Class.
The fee for enrollment is $200 with class enrollment cut-off set at 30. The class opens with a two-day retreat at Kirkwood National Golf Club on January 25-26. Attendance at the retreat is mandatory for graduation. Classes meet one day a month thereafter and training concludes with graduation in June.
This is the third LeadershipPlenty Class to be held in Marshall County with close to 50 graduates and the list grows each year. Former graduates participate in some aspects of the course, including graduation exercises.
Members benefit by expanding their knowledge of themselves and their natural leadership styles; they learn how to conduct a meeting; they become aware of the communities resources; they build networking skills and form professional friendships that can last a lifetime. Graduates cite new friendships forged as a major byproduct of the course.
Sponsors are being sought to support the costs of providing invited motivational speakers, the graduation banquet and other costs.
Business partnerships are offered at two levels.
At the $200 level the business or corporate name and logo will be listed on promotional materials, announced at meetings and provided to local media. The $200 level includes inclusion of the business card and brochures in gift bags, gifts of appreciation and tickets for two at graduation.
Partnering at the $100 level includes the above and one ticket to graduation.
To join the leadership class of 2007, to become a sponsor, or to gain more information about the program, call the Byhalia Area Chamber of Commerce at 662-838-8127 or the Holly Springs Chamber of Commerce at 662-252-2943. Deadline to become a partner is January 19.
