SUPPORT CHAMBER LEADERSHIP PROGRAMMING

The annual Chamber Golf Outing isn't just a fun day on the course - it's also the driving force behind the Chamber's top-notch leadership programming. Money raised from the Golf Outing provides scholarships for the Chamber's Leadership Grand Traverse program, our flagship leadership development initiative that's involved hundreds of participants over nearly four decades.

 

Sign up now for this year's event, to be held August 19 across The Bear and Wolverine courses at the Grand Traverse Resort & Spa. We also need hole sponsors and prize donations - a great way to promote your business to hundreds of golf outing participants. Click here to learn more.

The Chamber Golf Outing is sponsored by:

JUNE MEMBERSHIP ANNIVERSARIES

June is always a big membership anniversary month at the Chamber. For years the Chamber held its membership drives in early summer, so many of our long-time members have their Chamber "birthdays" this month.

JOIN LGT FELLOWS
Graduates of the Chamber's Leadership Grand Traverse program can stay connected with LGT and learn about new leadership opportunities available locally by joining Leadership Grand Traverse Fellows. LGT Fellows is an alumni program for past LGT participants, giving them an opportunity to interact with other graduates and use their skills and training for current leadership opportunities in the region. LGT Fellows also offers a series of "deep dive" discussions to reacquaint them with current LGT programming. If you're a Leadership Grand Traverse graduate, click here to learn more about LGT Fellows.
THE LEADERSHIP MOVIE TRILOGY

The premiere was great - and the sequel equally riveting. Now it's time for the third installment of Leadership at the Movies, the Chamber's new and unique leadership program that uses classic films and dynamic speakers to highlight leadership traits and lessons that business people can use in their professional settings.

 

The programs are from 7:30 - 9 a.m. in the cozy Bijou by the Bay theater across from the Chamber office. Leadership at the Movies is free to Chamber members, and the next showing is September 9. The speaker and topic will be announced soon, but you can grab a seat now by clicking here.
