Applications are currently being accepted for a leadership program in Fairfield.
According to the Fairfield Chamber of Commerce, Leadership Fairfield is in its eighth year and is the premier networking and professional development program in the area. The program includes eight monthly sessions each centered around a specific theme. Classes meet monthly from September to April. One day every month, the class meets for a day-long session to learn about the community and develop leadership skills. While there is some classroom time, much of the time is spent in the community taking tours, visiting businesses and non-profits, and doing hands-on activities.
The Chamber says the program is available to residents who live and/or work in the Fairfield area. It is a selective program. Anyone interested in sponsoring an employee to enroll in the program or to enroll yourself as a participant, download the program guidelines and application from the Chamber website at www.fairfieldiowa.com under the Events tab.
If participants register by August 5th at 5:00 PM the early bird enrollment fee is $550. For participants who register after August 5th the cost is $600. Non-Chamber members can enroll for $900. For more information or to register, please contact the Chamber at 641-472-2111 or email Mendy McAdams at [email protected]
