Next class of leaders to be held April 3

Feb. 14, 2014 @ 12:00 AM

WINFIELD -- Leadership Putnam County is ready to begin grooming its next class of leaders starting on April 3.

Since 1989, Leadership Putnam County has been introducing its class members to major facets of the Putnam County community through an intensive, nine-week course. During half day sessions, class members participate in educational sessions, tours and candid conversations with community leaders and business professionals.

Topics including law enforcement, recreation, education, economic development, government and more challenge members to see their community as they have never seen it before.

Leadership Putnam County is a way for a new employee, or one who is moving up the company ladder, to develop leadership skills while making valuable contacts and building lifelong relationships with other leaders in the community.

Classes are conducted from 8:30 a.m. until noon every Thursday for nine weeks, beginning April 3. Attendance at a minimum of one outside public meeting is a requirement for graduation. The cost is $250 for members of the Putnam County Chamber of Commerce, and $310 for nonmembers. The fee covers materials and a continental breakfast at most sessions.

A graduation ceremony is held in June.
