The Algonquin/Lake in the Hills Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce the Leadership Academy is now accepting applications for the Class of 2012.
Following a two year hiatus, the chamber, alumni and the villages of Algonquin and Lake in the Hills have combined the Ted Spella Leadership School and the Lake in the Hills Community Leadership School to create an exciting curriculum for 2012.
The Leadership Academy is a nine-month program designed to help individuals enhance their desire to learn more about their community. The goal is for participants to recognize and take on the challenge of making a difference through individual volunteering and participation in elective community activities. More than 60 adults over the age of 23 have graduated from the original programs. Many have continued their experience by assuming leadership roles in board positions, community projects as well as village and county positions.
Through the Leadership Academy and the efforts and enthusiasm of the alumni, our two communities continue to build a better place to live and work. For more information on the Leadership Academy, application criteria and tuition, visit www.ALChamber.com or call 847-658-5300. Businesses and organizations are encouraged to sponsor employees and residents who want to make their community a better place to live.
The Algonquin/Lake in the Hills Chamber of Commerce is a business organization promoting and supporting their business members in and around the area.
