Chamber, foundation start leadership class
Last Updated: 16:05 October 25, 2013
As many as 30 people will be chosen for the inaugural class, which is expected to serve as a training ground for local business and civic leaders, according to a press release from the Boulder Chamber. The educational, yearlong program will feature speakers from around the community and will take place at a variety of locations.
The new program will take the place of the former Leadership Boulder County program, which ran for 25 years, and the former Leadership Fellows program, which ran for four years. Hundreds of people participated in the previous programs, many of whom went on to serve as elected officials in the community, according to the release.
"Leadership Fellows Boulder County will provide participants with an even deeper appreciation for the social, environmental and economic interests our leaders must balance in their decisions," John Tayer, president of the Boulder Chamber, said in a prepared statement.
Applications for Leadership Fellows Boulder County will be accepted beginning in December. The program will start in March. Tuition will be $1,200 for the program, and a number of scholarships will be available, according to the press release.
