Applicants sought for program

The Licking County Chamber of Commerce is accepting applications for the 2013-2014 Community Leadership Program.

Participants will meet from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. one day per month from September through May. Meeting locations will vary according to the scheduled program. Speakers will include established community leaders and experts in their fields who will take part in panel discussions or lectures that explore issues, challenges and opportunities in Licking County.

Some meetings will require time beyond the nine scheduled class sessions.

The Community Leadership program cost is $800. To achieve the most diverse representation possible, the Chamber has provided a limited number of scholarships to support participants without corporate sponsorship.

Class size is limited to 25 people, and applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. The deadline to apply is Aug. 2. Approved applicants will be notified by Aug. 16.
