The Cleveland/ Bradley Chamber of Commerce (CBCC) is accepting applications for Leadership Cleveland’s 2021-22 class. Beginning in 1984, CBCC has graduated more than 500 from its Leadership Cleveland program, and returns after taking a break during the pandemic of 2020. Leadership Cleveland is an educational opportunity for professionals to increase knowledge of Cleveland and Bradley County and to further develop leadership skills.
“We are very excited to restart our Leadership Cleveland class after taking a pause last year.
The goal of our program is to educate future leaders of our community on all of the varied facets that make Cleveland and Bradley County so special to all of us,” said CBCC Executive Vice President Bernadette Douglas. “We look forward to having an exciting committed group begin the Leadership Cleveland journey in September.”
The program is designed for both business and non-profit professionals. Some scholarship funding is available via application and approval to executives and staff members of non-profit organizations. Education, government, social services, local economy, public safety, law enforcement and tourism are some of the topics taught during the ten days of classes taking place from September 2021 to May 2022.
Although adaptations may need to be made in regards to the pandemic, CBCC and the Leadership Cleveland Steering Committee pledge to offer an exceptional and safe experience with the excellence delivered in years past.
The deadline to apply is 5 p.m. on Aug. 27. Go to ClevelandChamber.com to apply. For more information about the program email Bernadette Douglas at BDouglas@clevelandchamber.com
