January 20 is New Deadline
The Oak Ridge Chamber of Commerce has announced an extension to the deadline for nominations for candidates for the 2009 class of Leadership Oak Ridge. The new deadline is January 20.
The program is undergoing many exciting changes. Among the changes is the transition of the management of the program to the Oak Ridge Chamber of Commerce. However, the most exciting change for participants and the community is the program format modifications.
Effective with the 2009 program year, Leadership Oak Ridge will transition to an issue based program from a community orientation program. In addition, the new format will feature applied leadership lessons in each session focused on the topic of the session. And, Leadership Oak Ridge participants will actively participate in the planning of the sessions with input, advice and guidance from Leadership Oak Ridge board members, Chamber staff and other community leaders.
Applications for the program, set to kickoff in February 2009, are available on the Chamber's website at www.oakridgechamber.org and at the Chamber office, 1400 Oak Ridge Turnpike. The program fee is $1,200 per person which includes the two overnight trips, meals and session costs. A limited number of scholarships are available. For more information, please contact the Chamber office or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Oak Ridge Chamber of Commerce is Four-Star Accredited Chamber of Commerce and a 2008 ACCE Chamber of the Year finalist.
