Applications for Blowing Rock Leadership Challenge!
The Blowing Rock
Leadership Challenge is an innovative leadership development program
produced and sponsored by the Blowing Rock Chamber of Commerce. This
program is designed to meet our community’s future needs for the active
participation of informed and educated leaders. The goal of the program is
to identify potential leaders and provide them with the community
information and encouragement needed to spur local action and involvement.
Graduates are challenged to apply their talents throughout the community by
becoming a part of local organizations, including public boards, nonprofit
groups, civic organizations, helping agencies and of course, the Chamber.
Leadership Challenge was started in 2007 and has an alumni group of almost
80. In addition to the Challenge held every other year, the alumni group is
also responsible for the production of the Blowing Rock Candidates’ Forum
for municipal elections in the fall. This program is an excellent
opportunity for people to meet many community leaders, to get connected to
the community and to learn how things work.
