Leadership Rowan application deadline is May 25

SALISBURY — The deadline to apply for the next class of Leadership Rowan is May 25.

The program aims to help the community’s most influential leaders become knowledgeable about issues, well-networked and passionate about the success of the region.

The Rowan County Chamber of Commerce celebrated the 25th anniversary of the program last year.

“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 – including government, education, business, human needs and arts organizations — and discovering what makes it distinctive.

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

Armed with new knowledge, connections and perspective, Leadership Rowan graduates are prepared to take their places as effective community leaders.

Only 30 applicants are selected to build a class representative of the community.

The class will begin in August and conclude in May 2019.

For more information, contact Mary Scott Norris at the Rowan Chamber of Commerce at 704-633-4221 or msnorris@rowanchamber.com.
