Eight local business, civic and government leaders graduated from the Carroll County Chamber of Commerce 2020 Adult Leadership Class on November 12. Four hundred seven people have graduated from the Adult Leadership program since its inception in 1990.
“The two month program provides the opportunity to learn about the life and work of Carroll County and to identify the issues, challenges and opportunities that face our communities in coming years.” said Natalie McCullough Porter, Chair of the Leadership Carroll County program. The sessions include information on Health Care, Government Operations, Education, County Demographics, Economic Development, Agriculture, Professional Development and much more.
Due to Covid-19, several changed were implemented this year. The maximum class size was reduced to eight. The number of sessions were reduced from nine to seven, and the class met weekly. Also, there was no traveling as a group allowed.
More than 875 individuals have gone through both the Adult and Youth Leadership programs. The Leadership sessions are an excellent opportunity to network with class members and presenters.
