SALISBURY — The Rowan County Chamber of Commerce is taking applications for the 2018-19 Leadership Rowan Class.

For 25 years, the Leadership Rowan program has worked to ensure community leaders are knowledgeable about issues, well-networked and passionate about the success of the area.

“We are extremely proud of the history and success of Leadership Rowan with over 550 graduates of the program,” said chamber President Elaine Spalding.

Class members commit one day a month to exploring the community and discovering what makes it distinctive, including government, education, business, human needs and the arts.

Throughout the nine-month program, participants go on exclusive tours and have hands-on experiences with area leaders.

Many people apply each year for the program but only 30 are selected to build a class representative of the community.

Applications are open through May 25. The class will begin in August and conclude in May 2019.
