(Dearborn County, Ind.) - We are excited to announce that enrollment in the third Leadership Dearborn class is now open! Over the last two years nearly 30 emerging leaders here in Dearborn County have found value and opportunity in the program. Throughout the year in monthly meetings participants attended professional development seminars, met a number of local leaders, participated in non-profits and worked on a project to improve the community.  This year we are continuing to grow Leadership Dearborn into our largest class yet!

The structure of the program will be an 11 month workshop which meets from March to January to focus on different aspects of leadership. The future leaders will take part in 60-90 minute seminars focused on various pertinent topics ( ex. How to Manage/Coach, Delegation, Project Management, Performance Reviews, Communication Skills, etc.) Another focus will be non-profit participation; exploring what various organizations do, how to get nominated to and participate in a Board of Directors, meeting with local governments to find out about projects and participation in steering committees. Time will be spent with local business leaders in order to learn the economic drivers of Dearborn County. Additionally throughout the course the class will be working together on a project of their choosing to solve a problem they identify that will help Dearborn County. We will recognize them and their progress at the Chamber Annual Dinner in November.

The cost of the course will be $450 for those who register early. This includes eleven months of leadership training and a Myers-Briggs personality type indicator for the participant as well as recognition of your organization for sponsoring that individual. Participants also receive complimentary access to various Chamber events such as Get Energized, Women of Distinction and the Annual Dinner.

Registration will close on February 28. We will be announcing the participants at the annual Get Energized luncheon and the first class will take place later in March. Classes will generally occur the second Tuesday of every month from 11:30 – 1.

To enroll call the Chamber at 812-537-0814 or the United Way at 812-537-2009 or email Eric Kranz at
