Leadership Cherokee Class 2017


As strong leadership is a prime ingredient in the continuing development of any community, the Chamber’s Leadership Cherokee program educates existing and emerging leaders. If Cherokee County is to achieve its potential, people must be aware of the social, economic, educational and governmental needs of the community.  Participants profit from getting to know each other and from the formal and informal exchange of ideas and experiences. They gain knowledge from the overall program on many subjects, thus preparing them for a more active leadership role in the community.

Over the nine-month long program, Leadership Cherokee participants are required to attend an orientation, a retreat, eight class sessions and a graduation ceremony.  Commitment to 100% attendance is required of each participant. Concluding its 28th year, Leadership Cherokee boasts 550 Alumni.
