I got invited recently to attend a Chamber of Commerce seminar called Volunteer Leaders Workshop. It takes place on June 9 in Sacramento. The stated purpose of the workshop is to assist in developing an effective leadership team to guide your Chamber to excellence.
It is presented by Superchex which is a group of Northern California Chamber executives, and it provides “activities to enhance the professional knowledge and skills of its members.” I’m really pleased to be able to attend this seminar because it adds to a base of knowledge and experience that I’ve gained through my lifetime.
The topics to be covered in the seminar appear to be quite interesting and helpful. They include:
- Taking your Chamber to the Next Level
- The Character of Leadership
- Roles and Responsibilities of Effective Chambers
- Board Service – Is It Worth It?
- Legal Liabilities for Board Members
I think that activities such as this ultimately equip you for better service in all areas of life, not just the Chamber activities. I’m looking forward to it.
