Leadership Walker County Application

How are funds for education and county projects raised and allocated? As a professional, are you looking for an opportunity to network while learning valuable leadership skills? Here’s your chance… apply to be a member of the Leadership Walker County class.

This program, facilitated by the Chamber, is a collaborative effort between Chamber staff & volunteers, community leaders and chamber members. The program provides participants the opportunity to learn and strengthen the skills & knowledge necessary to be a leader in the community. Participants are given an overview of city and county operations, tours of attractions and manufacturers, along with a first-hand look at the judicial system, education systems, and social services.

The program takes place annually from September until May; beginning with an outdoor bonding retreat and ending with a graduation ceremony. Members must receive approval from their direct supervisor before an application will be considered. Tuition for the program is $350 for Chamber Members and $400 for non-Chamber Members, and scholarships are also available. All fees must be paid in full (before the beginning of the program) by the participant, the participant’s employer or a combination of the two.

This opportunity is limited to 24 participants, so if you’re interested, we encourage you to submit your application today.
