The 23 class members recently attended a retreat at Brasstown Valley Resort, where team-building exercises enabled them to learn about themselves and each other through a look at personality types and communication styles.
Over the course of nine months, the class will participate in sessions that focus on topics such as economic development, infrastructure, government, justice, education, recreation, tourism, public safety, healthcare, and social/human services.
“The knowledge gained from the programs offered through Leadership Cherokee will prepare the class members for a more active role in the community,” said John Barker, 2019 Cherokee Chamber chair.
Following the nine-month program, the class will graduate during a ceremony in September. For information on the Leadership Cherokee Class of 2020, contact the Chamber office at 770-345-0400, or visit CherokeeChamber.com.
