LKN Chamber opens applications for leadership class

The Lake Norman Chamber is accepting applications for the 2017 – 2018 session of Leadership Lake Norman.  Applications have been made available to Chamber members but the program is also open to non-members wishing to expand their knowledge of the Lake Norman region.  Leadership Lake Norman, in its 21st year, is a program to develop a group of informed, committed, and qualified individuals capable of providing visionary and progressive leadership for the Lake Norman region.

The tuition for the nine-month course is $425 for Chamber members and $500 for non-members.  Applications should be received by Sept. 15 to be eligible for the program.  All applicants will be notified in writing regarding acceptance in the program by September 19th. Just over 400 community and business leaders have graduated from the program.

Each year, the Lake Norman Chamber selects a class of highly motivated and committed leaders for a series of seminars and retreats.  The group will hear speakers from the fields of tourism, health care, economic development, community infrastructure, education, regional history, the judicial system, and municipal government.

Shavonne Lowhoy, Supervisor, Revenue Cycle for Ensemble Health Partners in Huntersville, and a recent graduate of the program recommends the program, said her understanding of municipal government increased enormously. “My take away is when I may be sitting in traffic – I now realize, it took at least 20 years for this highway, street etc., to be built…Growth is something that is cultivated and it starts with a relationship. I believe that my classmates will support my long-term growth and for that I am extremely grateful and will always be for this experience,” she said.

Anyone interested in Leadership Lake Norman can contact the Chamber at 704- 892-1922 and an application will be forwarded. More info: www.lakenormanchamber.org.
