The Bellingham/Whatcom Chamber of Commerce & Industry has opened enrollment for Leadership Whatcom, a nine-month series of classes and workshops to help local young professionals develop community leadership skills.
Applications, which are due by Monday, Oct. 21, are available online. The program begins on Friday, Oct. 25.
According to the Chamber: “Field trips will introduce students to local business and government leaders. Participants will learn about the multifaceted issues facing our community and the challenge of economic development in the 21st Century. The coordinated evening classes will teach participants about their individual leadership style, how to effectively communicate a vision and what makes a leader great. At the conclusion, each student will leave with an individual leadership plan.”
