Leadership Catawba, the longest running program at the Chamber of Catawba County, has educated and equipped hundreds of Catawba County residents with information about the social, economic, and political dynamics of our community.
Over the next 8 months, participants will be immersed in community issues and challenges that our organization positions ourselves to directly address in the areas of Reinventing Community, Telling our Story, Serving our Community, Building for Jobs, Work Force Connectivity, and Small Business and Entrepreneurship.
