If learning more about the history, healthcare, education and law enforcement of Atmore sounds interesting, the Atmore Chamber of Commerce may have the answer to your questions.
Chamber Executive Director Sheryl Vickery said the Leadership Atmore program has space available for those individuals looking to broaden their leadership skills.
Vickery said the program would begin with an overnight retreat geared toward introducing participants to the program and each other.
Vickery said the sessions of the program include a leadership skills class in October, followed by monthly sessions including history and culture, healthcare, education, law enforcement, legislative and business and industry. Graduation from the program is held in May.
Vickery said applications are now being accepted and should be returned as soon as possible.
Vickery said there are some leadership skill questions to be answered on the application, but the main concern is dedication.
Those who complete the program would also become a part of the Leadership Atmore alumni group, Vickery said.
Plans are to offer updated information for past Leadership participants, she said.
