Leadership Jackson Accepting Nominations for 2015 Class

By: Julie Daniels, Communications Coordinator on Jun 30, 2015

The Jackson Chamber is now accepting nominations for its adult leadership program, Leadership Jackson. Leadership Jackson gives business professionals employed with companies the opportunity to better understand the community, opportunities and challenges it faces. The three-month program gives class members the chance to visit community landmarks, meet with area leaders and participate in weekly sessions about topics impacting Jackson-Madison County, including education, healthcare and government.

      The program launched its nomination process on Monday, June 1 and applicants can fill out a nomination form online at www.leadershipjackson.com. Anyone that is interested in participating in Leadership Jackson should talk with their leadership to nominate them or self-nominate if they are the primary decision maker. The class program schedule is also available on the program’s website. Due to the number of nominations, members must limit their nominations to one per chamber member.  Applicants must be a Jackson Chamber member to apply.

      The 2015 class will be led by Leadership Jackson Chair Angie Lowery, Financial Advisor, Morgan Stanley, along with Leadership Jackson Vice Chair, Jon Ewing, Chief Operations Officer, Woman’s Clinic, P.A. During the program, class members will meet weekly for sessions on various topics.  A leadership skill building component is incorporated into each session. Leaders in key areas, such as health care, criminal justice, economic development, livability, education and government will share an overview of the present state, challenges and future vision.  This information provides the class with a broad understanding of the inter-workings of Jackson-Madison County and a big picture view.
