Recruitment underway for next leadership class
The recruitment efforts are underway to enroll between 25 and 30 members for the 2010 Leadership Marshall Class.
Early enrollment for the class is needed to make sure enough are signed up before the supporting organizations make a commitment of resources. The chambers of commerce in Byhalia and Holly Springs and the Marshall County Extension Service help organize the program and recruit a new class each year. The local business community supports the program, which will be in its fifth year.
“They (businesses) have been wonderful to send participants and/or to sponsor meals,” said Sarah Sawyer, executive director of the Byhalia Area Chamber of Commerce.
“The class size is important to make this work. This year we had 22 enrolled, but we would like more.”
Business executives and government leaders are encouraged to be thinking of one or more employees they would like to offer the course to, or they are asked to make a commitment to continuing leadership education by participating themselves.
To date, over 120 individuals in Marshall County have enjoyed this all important experience.
Individuals are encouraged to ask their supervisor or CEO for permission to attend next year’s class which begins in January with a two-day retreat. One day a month is required with graduation in June.
“All ages are welcomed,” Sawyer said. “We want diversity. We want senior citizens and young adults.”
