The Leadership Englewood program brings together individuals who are looking to increase their leadership skills and gain a better understanding of the opportunities and challenges in our community. In addition to the personal development benefits, program graduates often say the personal relationships formed with fellow classmates is even more valuable. The program starts on October 18th with a Leadership Launch / Ice-Breaker with monthly day-long sessions focusing on education, health care, the local economy and more. Applications can be picked-up at the Chamber office, downloaded or submitted online (see below).
