The Fort Bend Chamber of Commerce presents the Leadership Forum Class of 2014 generously sponsored by Classic Chevrolet. This class represents the 26th year that a group of outstanding individuals will participate in a rigorous program of leadership development and community engagement through active learning, expert insight, and experiential activities.
As the premier leadership development program in the region, the Fort Bend Leadership Forum was designed to prepare for the community needs that demand the involvement of informed citizens. The Fort Bend Leadership Forum offers structured learning opportunities in an atmosphere that stimulates creative thinking and encourages participants to work together to utilize both new and proven tools to meet the challenges of today and to prepare for tomorrow.
The class participants are selected each year from a wide spectrum of the area’s population. The Fort Bend Leadership Forum is a ten-month program, August through May starting off with a one and a half day opening retreat in San Antonio. The opening retreat is followed by monthly one-day sessions covering criminal justice, diversity, economic development/infrastructure, health and social services, municipal/county government, and a two-day trip to Austin for the state government session. In addition, this year’s class will participate in a special three-day national government session in Washington D.C.
The Fort Bend Chamber of Commerce Leadership under the direction of Division Vice-Chairs Jeff Tallas and Emily Rhodes celebrates its tradition of providing the region’s premier leadership development program.
