The Cambridge Area Chamber of Commerce is now accepting applications for the 2020-2021 Leadership Guernsey class.

Established in 1995, Leadership Guernsey is a learning program for emerging and potential leaders in Guernsey County. Its twofold purpose is to improve the attendees’ leadership skills and to provide a comprehensive examination of the workings of our Guernsey County community.

The program is one day per month, starting in September and ending in May. The first session covers team building and self-evaluation. The monthly sessions following include topics concerning business and industry, quality of life/arts and tourism, government, law enforcement and courts, media, medical, social services, education, skills for leading, and a class project. Not only will the participants improve their leadership skills, they will gain valuable insight about their community and can network with a wide range of people.

As a result of this program, the community gains more informed citizens; employers gain more informed and motivated employees. There is a $450 fee for this program for Chamber members; $500 fee for non-chamber members. It covers the speakers, meals, class lanyards, and graduation. The employer typically pays the fee.

We are moving forward with in-person meetings but will have Zoom ready for back-up. Participants can wear a mask if they choose, social distancing will be outlined, and sanitation will take place throughout the day. These guidelines are subject to change based on government and health department orders and recommendations during the pandemic.

The class is limited to 20 participants and is filled as applications with payments are received – first come, first served.
