The Edinburg Chamber of Commerce is currently accepting applications for Leadership Edinburg Class XXXIII. The program has availability for 20 participants.
This leadership program connects business professionals with other community leaders from throughout the city and region. LE ensures highly motivated leaders and managers deepen their leadership skills. Ultimately, graduates contribute to the growth and improvement of the business they represent.
“Our program is highly effective and is a perfect fit for individuals seeking to learn and become more involved in their community,” said Ronnie Larralde, executive director of the Edinburg Chamber.
The program will kick off Sept. 24-25 with an overnight retreat at South Padre Island. Following are eight monthly, half-day sessions that run until May 2022. LE also provides distinct learning environments with the aim to improve leadership skills. Each month will have a different community focus. These include history, education, healthcare, economic development, government, quality of life and community service.
Through the foundation of the program, the class sets a goal in which all members develop and complete a project that helps give back to the community. More than 500 graduates have taken the Leadership Edinburg Program.
