Leadership Carteret challenge

Which class is the best ever?

Leadership Carteret is one of the Chamber’s proudest traditions.

“Our goal since 1988 has been constant, and that is to help up-and-coming community leaders gain knowledge and build relationships that will enable them to be more successful here in Carteret county…and make a difference in our communities,” said Alan Leary of RE/MAX Ocean Properties, a co-chair of the Leadership Carteret Steering Committee.

The program runs for 10 consecutive weeks and the focus is on introducing the class members to the places, people and issues that define our county.

“The participants also do hands-on projects that benefit local not-for-profit groups that add so much to the fabric of our community here,” said Steve Hellersperk, of ACS Computer Service and Toastmasters-Morehead City, also a committee co-chair.

Leadership takes place from mid-January to mid-March. Tuition is $495 for Chamber members and $595 for others (please note: tuition is subject to change).  The class is limited to 30 participants.  Contact Taylor McCune at taylor@nccoastchamber.com for more information.
