Leadership Golden Strip: Class 2 Session
Leadership Golden Strip is a collaborative effort between the Fountain Inn and Simpsonville Area Chambers of Commerce. Members from the entire Golden Strip community are invited to apply for this dynamic program, designed to develop and retain a knowledgeable, engaged workforce.
Leadership Golden Strip opens doors for local businessmen and women with the desire and ability to shape the future of our vibrant communities. Through face-to-face meetings with city, county, and state leaders and on-site visits to local institutions, agencies, and organizations, participants explore the major issues and unique challenges facing the Golden Strip area.
Leadership Golden Strip is offered to any interested individual who lives or works in the area. Both Chamber members and non-members are eligible to participate. Monthly meetings kick off with a mandatory Orientation Session in August 2019 and conclude in the spring of 2020. The group will be recognized with a formal graduation ceremony.
This dynamic program supports the development of corporate and community leaders by:
- Introducing participants to aspects of developing and maintaining a vibrant community,
- Establishing dialogue with a wide range of community leaders,
- Encouraging engagement in activities which contribute to the betterment of the community,
- Providing employers with a source of knowledgeable and trained leaders who will have a positive impact on the business community.
