Middle School Speakers Bureau Returns
As part of the Workforce Development Taskforce, the Middle School Speakers Bureau is returning to local schools this year. Professionals in manufacturing and trades organizations spend a day in Union County Public Schools, sharing hands-on presentations with middle school students about career opportunities in those fields. Training for those presentations took place January 25, 2022 at the Chamber. The first day in the schools was in February and was met with rave reviews from the students.
2022 Leadership Union Class Kicks Off the Year
Leadership Union is a leadership development program that offers participants the opportunity to meet community and civic leaders, explore key issues impacting our region, establish quality business contacts, and develop lasting friendships. The mission is to develop and foster leaders in Union County – providing education about community strengths and opportunities, and to encourage community stewardship. Participants meet for 10 sessions throughout the year and each session details a different aspect of our community. We’re excited to have this year’s class class sessions in person. So far, the group has met for a Leadership Retreat, Union County Day, and Nonprofit Day.
