The Chemung County Chamber of Commerce is accepting applications for the 2013-2014 session of its Leadership Chemung program until Monday, August 19th.

Leadership Chemung is designed to develop individuals for future leadership roles in the Chemung County area. Candidates should live or work in the county and be interested in developing their skills and knowledge of community issues, as well as in pursuing leadership roles in their community and career.

The program begins with a mandatory full-day orientation session and continues with 14 two-and-a-half hour classes, followed by a commencement ceremony. To graduate, participants must attend at least 12 full sessions of the 14 offered, along with the orientation.

Classes cover a broad range of subjects including County History, Local Government/Economic Development, Public Safety, Issues in Education, Legal Issues, Role of Culture, Transportation, Healthcare and Volunteerism.

Tuition is $665 for employees of Chemung Chamber member firms, or $850 for employees of non-members. The fee covers the cost of tuition, materials, supplies and refreshments and may be paid by the participant, sponsoring business or a combination of the two.

To request an application, please contact Susan Panetta at the Chamber by calling (607) 734-5137 or e-mailing susan@chemungchamber.org.
