NEJC Chamber announces Leadership Northeast Class of 2013

The Northeast Johnson County Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce their Class of 2013. Leadership Northeast is an education leadership program that consists of nine sessions devoted to identifying and strengthening the leadership skills of participants and putting that knowledge into action in the Northeast Johnson County communities. Some of the core components of the course include: leadership styles, volunteerism, community building, state government, economic development, county government, public safety and regional issues. Each of the sessions will focus on an area of leadership development. Crucial skills will be fostered through various speakers, hands-on experiences, community involvement, meetings with key leaders in the NEJC community and working with fellow class members to identify potential solutions. Graduates of Leadership Northeast have gone on to serve in leadership capacities in their organizations, their neighborhoods and in city and state government.
