The Lehigh Acres Chamber of Commerce's Leadership Lehigh Class of 2010 will start in August. The Leadership Lehigh Steering Committee is now accepting applications from present/future community leaders, said Joe Whalen, CEO and president of the Chamber. Leadership Lehigh provides a hands-on program where participants view systems up close, work together to achieve a unique knowledge of resources and services available in this area, region and state.
"Leadership Lehigh is an organized training ground for our community's future leaders," Whalen said.
Leadership Lehigh has four specific objectives:
Identify Community Leaders.
Expand the leadership potential of the participants by increasing their knowledge.
Improve communications between present and future leaders in the community.
Provide a channel for those presently not in leadership roles to gain access to positions of community leadership in an informed and responsible manner.
