Deadline Approaching for Leadership Program

The Chamber of Commerce is recruiting for its Leadership Belmont/San Carlos/Redwood City Program 2012-2013.

Do you want to learn more about the local community where you live or work? Are you someone who is ready to learn how to become more involved in issues facing our community? Are you someone who is already involved in the local community but wants to gain access to local community & business leaders?  

The Redwood City – San Mateo County Chamber of Commerce is looking for new recruits for Leadership Program 2012-2013.  Look at your organizations, look at your staff, look at your friends & neighbors ... Do they want to learn more about the community they live in?  Spread the word!  Send them to our website to apply:  http://www.redwoodcitychamber.com/redwood-city-belmont-san-carlos-leadership-program.php

This past graduating class left the program with a new or renewed sense of commitment to their local community. Check out comments below!
With your help, perhaps we’ll see some future volunteers, commissioners or community leaders from the Class of 2013.
