The Hardin County Chamber and Business Alliance has announced a new partnership with Hardin Leadership Inc., as the two organizations will work together to help recruit, train and engage community and business leaders throughout Hardin County.
Staring this year, all 2015 graduates will be provided a one-year free membership to the Hardin County Chamber and Business Alliance, which will provide many opportunities to continue their leadership engagement through the various programs, events and committees that are coordinated with our chamber, tourism, economic development and community development divisions.
“We are excited to partner with the Alliance to offer this incentive to our graduates. This will only strengthen and improve the already diverse leadership training experience we offer,” said Tobey Steinman, board president of Hardin Leadership Inc. “Hardin Leadership has a goal to identify, develop, motivate and involve potential community leaders, and this partnership gives them another place to use the skills they have learned from the Hardin Leadership program."
This joint venture was board-approved this year by both organizations in a move to enhance the importance of leadership development. In addition, this was an important action item achieved within the Hardin County Chamber and Business Alliance’s five-year strategic plan.
“As Hardin County’s economy is growing and we are attracting new residents and businesses to our communities, developing strong leaders is critical to the success of our communities,” said Jon Cross, president and CEO of the Alliance.
