CLOVIS, Calif. – The Clovis Chamber is proud to announce signups for the 14th year of Leadership Clovis. Started in 2000, the program has created many strong leaders who have taken their skills into the workplace and the community. The program is an instructional and hands-on leadership learning experience that includes networking, field observation and community involvement.

The program calls for a two-year commitment. The first year is instruction-led learning (ILT) followed by community project involvement.

The ILT will be held at the Willow International Community College Center and is led by the facilitator with various guest speakers from business, government and the community. The focus of the sessions will include Communication, Coaching, Conflict Resolution, Corrective Action, Managing and Appraising Performance, Interviewing, Human Resources and the Law, Business Communication, Time Management, Diversity and Change Management.

The class will also make a collaborative decision on the second year project. Recently, the class of 2007 completed its project of obtaining contributions and commissioning a bronze statue of Floyd “Doc” Bucahanan, founder of the current Clovis Unified School District. Other projects have included creating the Clovis Way of Life logo and definition, establishing a scholarship fund for the Willow International Community College and donating to the Clovis Boys and Girls Club.

The Chamber welcomes its new facilitator, Kurt Stinson, Principal of Stinson & Associates. A 30 year resident of the Fresno/Clovis area, Kurt has focused his professional energy into training, instructional design, leadership development and middle-management executive coaching. He has facilitated conference/meeting audiences from 25 to 2500.

“In 10 years with the Clovis Chamber, I have enjoyed seeing Leadership Clovis continue as a worthwhile program that has helped create successful leaders throughout our community,” said Clovis Chamber President/CEO Mark Blackney. “For 2012, I am excited about the program’s new direction under the guidance of Kurt Stinson of Stinson & Associates and look forward to seeing the program grow.”

Discounts apply for Clovis Chamber members and their employees.
