As business leaders, you continually seek to develop new skills, utilize your knowledge of the area's businesses, and enhance community awareness for you and your employees.
Several programs are available through The Chamber to connect with industry leaders, learn from experts in a variety of fields, and hear community updates that impact business and quality of life.
I want to personally thank The Chamber and Carol Constantino from Noteworthy for a very informative tour of the factory. The time frame was very convenient and the information was quite useful, especially in my field. I liked the presentation on the part of The Chamber, getting everyone to speak about their business. I would personally make every effort to attend other tours . . . I know I made a wise decision joining The Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce."

The program also includes Tuesday Tours, providing the opportunity to gain exposure to and visit all types of business and industry in Fulton and Montgomery counties.
Contact The Chamber for more information on Leadership Academy and other programs that are scheduled throughout the year.
"Leadership Academy provided valuable opportunities that we might not have otherwise been exposed to without participation in this program. The Academy not only taught us about professional leadership. It taught us about our obligations to serve ourselves, our loved ones, our associates and our community with grace, dignity, and humility. We heard presentations on community board service and involvement, shared deeply personal experiences with presenters, and ourselves became open to the idea that there is much more to â€˜leadership' that what you can do for your job. Leaderships Academy taught us to not just be better professionals, but to be better people."
