ELMIRA, N.Y. — The Chemung County Chamber of Commerce is accepting applications through Sept. 30 for the Leadership Chemung Class of 2021.
The virtual program will begin this October with commencement set for April 2021.
Candidates must submit an application with two references that the Leadership Chemung committee can review. The committee will then select a maximum of 24 individuals “representing a cross-section of the community” to participate in the program.
Leadership Chemung is designed to develop individuals for future leadership roles in Chemung County and the Southern Tier by “broadening their knowledge and awareness of the community and honing their leadership skills.”
The program has worked with future community leaders more than three decades, the Chemung County Chamber said.
Class sessions cover topics such as multigenerational leadership; the business of education; workplace safety; technology and its effects on leadership; conflict in the workplace; and diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace.
Sessions are scheduled between 8 and 10 a.m.
Dusty Hewit of Long Run Communications in Corning will be the class facilitator. Hewit, who also facilitated the Chamber’s ESPRI Elevate Elmira Entrepreneur program, has a background in public/media relations, marketing, communications, and managing various client services.
