Jefferson County Leadership Training

Sponsored by Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce

October, 2013 - May, 2014

The objective of the project is to help develop future leaders for Jefferson County by making participants familiar with area institutions and facilities, as well as teaching them various leadership skills.

The year's programming will kick off with an all-day retreat at Jefferson Community College's Pugliese Training Center.  Dr. Ed Florak, well known professional trainer and presenter of motivational seminars will conduct te first meeting.  He will present an inter-active prgram centered around determining one's own leadership style and utilizing it more effectively.

Further classes will be held at various appropriate locations around the area, and will give class members the opportunity to interact with both governmental and economic leaders on an up-close and personal basis. A legislative day in Columbus is scheduled in May, which will include lunch with our legislators and observing a session of the Senate and House from the Statehouse floor!
Other topics to be addressed include local history, social services, local government, how to work with the media, education, group dynamics and leadership skills. Classes will be a mix of full and half-day sessions, and usually held on the third Tuesday of each month between November and May.
The Leadership Project is facilitated by Eliza Kelley, Jefferson County Community Action Council and Jim Morgan, Eastern Gateway Community College.

Fee for those sponsored by Chamber of Commerce members - $295.

The Chamber partners with the Community Action Council and Eastern Gateway Community College to present an opportunity for local business persons to take part in a series of meetings that educate them on the business, community, and government areas of Jefferson County. The series includes a trip to the Ohio State House in Columbus, Ohio and recognition by the Legislature on the floor of the House of Representatives. Many of todays successful business owners, managers and staff have successfully completed this great program.
