What is Leadership Merced?
Leadership Merced is a Chamber Program that incorporates emerging area leaders from Merced County who share a common goal; to serve their community and become better leaders . Anyone from private or public sectors can join the class which consists of one- or two-day sessions held each month for 10 months including a three-day weekend retreat.
How are the sessions?
Each session has different content, such as Healthcare and Education, Infrastructure, Government, Economy & Environment, among many others. The purpose and objective of the program is to broaden the class members' perspective on a variety of issues and topics that affect our region and to learn skill sets to render more effective decision-making. Participants will be challenged to reconsider traditional means of thinking by being exposed to other perspectives during each session and experiences with individuals representing different viewpoints and cultures.
Where do you sign up?
Due to the impacts of COVID-19, we are postponing applications for Leadership Merced Class 36. We will likely resume the program once we know more about large gatherings and when all Merced County businesses or organizations are open. We want Class 36 to have the best experience and that means ensuring that we our speakers and cohort members have the time and ability to dedicate to the program. Thank you for your understanding!
