Leadership Changes Its 'Face' in 2017

Are you a graduate of Leadership Sumter, Advancing Sumter or one of the Chamber's youth programs? Then we would like for you to share your feedback with us! The Chamber's Leadership Development Division is in the process of re-engineering current leadership programs as well as developing new ones to engage our college students in an advanced, next level experience. In order to develop these programs, we need your input!

To help guide us in this process we have developed an interactive online survey to gather your perspectives on our current programs, what you might like to see in future programs and how you might leverage your own leadership skills in our community as a volunteer and engaged community member. To share your feedback, please fill out a quick survey that can be accessed by c licking  here .

Even if you haven't participated in our local leadership programs, you still have critical feedback for our efforts. Community success depends on its current and future leadership, so please help us as we design these new programs.

For more information, please contact the Chamber at 229-924-2646.
