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.
