“Before taking this class I knew I wanted to do something for the community but now I have a much clearer idea of how I can use my talents and interests to make this a better place.”
“Being relatively new to the area I found this experience invaluable in introducing me to the community and to some new friends and professional colleagues I can call on in the future.”
“I am totally blown away with the new information that this course provided me about a community I thought I knew!”
These are just a few of the comments that past class members have made about the Mesa County Leadership Program. It was formed to educate future leaders of Mesa County about the fabric of the community, how various sectors are related and how to become more involved. This ten month program touches on important subjects such as education, water in the West, various levels of government, health care, and much more. In addition there is team building and leadership skill development.
Almost 200 outstanding local leaders have graduated from the program. Currently the Chamber is seeking applicants for the 2015/2016 class beginning in September 2015 and ending, May 2016. Applications are available online at www.gjchamber.org or if you’d like to discuss the program in greater detail contact Diane at the Chamber office, 970.242.3214. Deadline for applications is May 31, 2015.
