Do you have a passion for leadership and a desire to be part of something bigger where you live or work? If so, then Leadership Vance might just be what you’re looking for right now.
“We are currently seeking 15 to 20 individuals for the 2017 class,” said Henderson-Vance Chamber of Commerce Membership Director & LV Program Director Annette Roberson. “Each class is comprised of individuals who live, work or have an interest in the Henderson/Vance County community.”
This renowned program, created in the 1980’s is a program of the Henderson-Vance Chamber of Commerce. The program runs from February to July with ten class sessions plus a Community Services project and Graduation dinner.
It is designed to provide a behind-the-scenes view of the processes, programs, opportunities and challenges that impact the City of Henderson, and Vance County. Leadership Vance gives participants a chance to meet and exchange ideas with each other and with current community leaders.
Program graduates are equipped with the knowledge and the network to assume leadership roles at a local, regional, or state level and beyond. “We’ve had many graduates of this program use what they have learned to pursue leadership roles on city councils, nonprofits or other business board of directors, in addition to local school boards,” said Roberson.
Program cost is $325 for Chamber members and $400 for non-Chamber members. The tuition fee includes all course materials, meals, retreat expenses, travel, graduation banquet and diploma. This year we have available two scholarship spots in the program provided by the LV Class of 2016. Applications for the two scholarship spots will be looked at and voted on by the LV Class of 2016.
Application is attached. To nominate an individual or for more information, please contact Annette Roberson at 252.438.8414 or [email protected]. Applications are accepted until the class is full.
