Chamber YOUniversity

This Chamber is all about YOU!  We are here to support, educate and help YOU grow YOUR business through education and  networking. 

 

Chamber YOUniversity classes are one hour, educational classes taught by members of the chamber, and are offered monthly at no charge to Chamber members only. The intent is to cover the basics of a topic and ensure participants leave having learned something concrete they can put into practice.

Higher Ed courses, a new track within the Chamber YOUniversity model, are more in-depth, longer courses (2+ hours) and are intended to dive deeper into a specific topic/technology/app. Participants already have more than a basic understanding of the topic and are looking for additional knowledge on how to incorporate the topic/technology/app into various aspects of their business and/or personal lives. Classes are taught by experts in their field and have a fee associated with them. 

Leadership Institute or Lead In, is an experiential leadership development program designed to attract and retain an educated population of young professionals and leaders by equipping them with skills necessary to propel them to the next level of leadership through interaction with community decision-makers.

 The program will expose participants to critical community issues that enhance each members’ understanding of assets and resources within the community, potential solutions to problems and strategies for becoming more involved. This includes providing access and interaction with public servants and community and business leaders from all areas of development to experience hands-on learning and expanding participants’ understanding of people and beliefs that may be different than their own.

Program size is intentionally limited to 20 participants between the ages of 21 and 40.  The program runs late March through mid-November with members meeting the 3rd or 4th Wednesday of the month for several hours.

2017 applications are due by March 13.  Download the application here!
