The 2009 Leadership Lamar Steering Committee has begun preparations for this year’s class to start in July. Leadership Lamar is an intense 18 week program which teaches its participants leadership skills and incorporates community learning opportunities. This program is an exceptional way to keep citizens informed about the community and to teach them how to be more confident leaders. In order to ensure that the program remains strong, it is vital that the community nominate potential candidates to the program. Nomination forms have been mailed to local government officials, past participants, and chamber members. These nominations are due by March 31, 2009 and need to be returned to the Chamber of Commerce located at 100 Commerce Place, or email at email@example.com. For more information on the program or if you would like to nominate someone to the program, please call the Chamber of Commerce at (770)358-5884.
