The primary objective of Leadership OBX is to educate business and organizational professionals about economic, demographic and social resources, as well as the successes and challenges of the diverse area. Chamber president and CEO Karen Brown said the program reinforces the Chamber’s commitment to the area and to developing community leaders.
The Class of 2019-2020 runs from late October 2019 through early May 2020 and includes a welcome reception, retreat (Sunday/Monday) and 10 full-day sessions every 2-3 weeks, all scheduled on Wednesdays. The full tuition for the program is $500. A limited number of partial scholarships are available to those who qualify.
