About Leadership Winchester
Leadership Winchester is designed to promote our community by facilitating an awareness of the many facets of Winchester.
Newcomers to Winchester who have graduated from this program have appreciated this special introduction to our community. It has given them a chance to see the many opportunities that are available to citizens of Winchester and has afforded them the occasion to meet people socially as well as to make business contacts.
Winchester`s longtime citizens who have graduated from this program are often amazed at just how uninformed they are. They discover what their friends actually do in our many industries and are able to put faces behind those billboards identifying the factory, hospital or school.
The Leadership Winchester program can also become an opportunity for a person to find a place in the community where they can contribute their time or talents. During each class session, we will emphasize leadership and volunteer positions in our community.
Participants are required to attend one monthly, day-long session from 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. over an eight month period. Areas of study during the sessions are Quality of Life, Health & Human Services, Education, Economic Development, Local and State Government and Agribusiness. Participants will visit numerous city and county offices as well as industrial and commercial businesses in Winchester.
Participation is open to anyone living and/or working in Winchester/Clark County. Selection is determined without regard to race, color, religion, sex or national origin. Class members are selected by persons outside Clark County based on information provided on the class application.
Applications are available at the Chamber offices at 2 South Maple Street by clicking this link to print one from our website. If you have questions about the Leadership Winchester program, we encourage you to contact our office by phone 859-744-6420.
