Sponsored each year by the Chamber, Leadership Cherokee boasts more than 500 graduates since the program’s inception in 1987.
“Leadership Cherokee produces experienced leaders for business, civic and political roles in our community,” said Randy Gravley, 2013 Chamber chair. “Monthly programs for the Leadership Cherokee Class of 2014 will focus on a variety of topics such as education, justice, infrastructure, public safety, healthcare, government and social/human services.”
Following an application and interview process, the class — which varies in size each year — will be chosen in November.
Cost for this nine-month program that begins in January 2014 and concludes in September 2014 is $675 for Chamber members and $825 for nonmembers (the fee includes a one-year individual Chamber membership for nonmembers).
