LEADERSHIP GOLDEN STRIP
The three Chambers of Commerce of the Golden Strip are proud to announce an expanded collaboration to facilitate Leadership Golden Strip (LGS). LGS is a leadership development program for local business men and women who live and work in Fountain Inn, Mauldin, and Simpsonville. The next class will kick-off this August, with participants graduating in the spring of 2020.
Leadership Golden Strip (LGS) is a ten-month program for professionals with the desire and ability to shape the future of our vibrant communities. Through face-to-face meetings with regional leaders and on-site visits with local agencies and businesses, participants will explore the major issues and unique challenges facing the Golden Strip area.
“Since joining the staff of the Fountain Inn Chamber, I have been pursuing meaningful opportunities to engage our members and encourage workforce and leadership development,” says Fountain Inn Chamber President Whitney Ferguson. “This collaboration is in line with the mission of our Chamber, and I anticipate that our members will be eager to become involved.”
“We are thrilled for this opportunity to collaborate with not one, but two of our neighboring Chambers, and to offer a more robust leadership development option for members of our community,” says Simpsonville Area Chamber President Allison McGarity. The Simpsonville Area Chamber has a strong history of developing community leaders by providing its own Leadership Simpsonville program, which was incorporated into the LGS program in 2018.
Applications for LGS Class 3 will ne available January 2021.
