The Wyoming County Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce the start of its fifth annual Leadership Wyoming class, joining more than 50 professional leadership programs throughout the state.

The annual 9-month program is designed to strengthen leadership and professional development skills of the area’s local business leaders.

Applications for 2020-2021 are now being accepted on wyccc.com.

Class participants:

  • Gain regional awareness about local resources.
  • Collaborate with other industries.
  • Grow leadership skills to make a difference in their workplace and community.

Class size is limited to 15, and the Chamber will be respecting proper social distancing and recommended Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines.

“I loved all the unique opportunities to network and explore. One of the best features of the sessions was the ability to ask questions of the speakers,” said Ashlee Butkiewciz, Southwestern Energy. “The speakers represent businesses or services in Wyoming County and I felt like I was getting ‘insider’ information and connections by having this kind of access to them.”

“The Leadership Wyoming program was helpful for my professional development in multiple ways. I gained knowledge of Wyoming County businesses and resources, along with an increase in my leadership skills through team-building activities,” said Glenn C. Layou III, Kronick Kalada Berdy & Co. PC. “I met some great people within our community and hope to continue to help our area grow in the future.”
