Leadership Jackson accepting Nominations
Leadership Jackson Class of 2018 visits Community Montessori School in Jackson, TN.
The Jackson Chamber is accepting nominations for Leadership Jackson, its adult leadership program. Leadership Jackson gives business professionals the opportunity to understand the community and its opportunities and challenges. During the three-month program, class members visit area landmarks, meet with area leaders and participate in weekly sessions about topics impacting Jackson-Madison County, including education, health care, and government.
Starting June 1, applicants can fill out a nomination form online at leadershipjackson.com. Applicants must be a Jackson Chamber member to apply and a leader in their company or organization should nominate them. They can nominate themselves if they are the primary decision maker. Due to class size, members must limit their nominations to one per chamber member.
The 2019 class will be led by Leadership Jackson Chair Lauren Saliba, Apria Healthcare and Vice Chair Russ McKelvey, Mack Pest Control. The curriculum covers various topics during each weekly session and incorporates a leadership skill-building component. 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 inner workings of Jackson-Madison County and a big picture view.
