Developing Leaders For Our Community’s Future
The Redwood City – San Mateo County Chamber of Commerce Leadership Program

In dynamic sessions held one Friday a month, September through June, participants learn about issues of vital concern to their city; and learn how they can effectively shape the future of their community, their organization or their business. The focus of each session is not on specific political viewpoints; rather, a number of alternative views are presented from experts in the given areas. Sessions generally run from 8am until 3pm. A continental breakfast and lunch are provided.

We invite those individuals seeking to challenge themselves by becoming more educated and involved in their community. Enrollment is limited to 40 individuals. Completed applications are due back to the Chamber no later than Wednesday, August 31st, 2012.

Tuition Tuition for the program is $1,000.00, due by the first class day.
