Leadership Spencer

Spencer, IA (KICD)–Applications for the 2014 Leadership Spencer class are currently being accepted.
Leadership Spencer is a 10-week course with classes held at various locations and gives students a better understanding of the inner workings of the Spencer community.

Spencer Chamber Executive Director Bill Campbell tells KICD News that they switch things up every year and are excited to take a trip to Project Liberty in Emmetsburg this year.

This course is designed to allow participants maximum information in a minimal amount of time with time set aside at each session for questions and answers.  A class or individual project is also a popular piece of the course which in the past has included attending city functions, volunteering at a community agency or working as a group on ways to improve quality of life.

Leadership Spencer starts March 3rd and continues each Monday through May 5th.  Campbell says they attempt to keep the class size around 20.  Fee for the 10 week course is $180 which includes all class materials and any required transportation.
To register or for more information call the Chamber office.  Class topics along with a downloadable registration form is available at the chamber website.
