ROSEBURG, Ore. -- The Roseburg Chamber of Commerce is now accepting applications for a successful community project program.
Project Leadership is a two-year program, and it's made up of nine educational classes beginning in September and concluding in May.
In the first year, the future leaders will attend workshops, tours and briefings, and become more involved in community politics. Debbie Fromdahl, president of the Roseburg Chamber of Commerce, told KPIC News about the program. "They learn about all the specific industries within Douglas County. From health care to timber, to manufacturing, to education, to the role of government. They really kind of learn, on the ground, what makes this community run, what makes it tick."
In the second year of the program, the future leaders will complete a community project selected by class participants that will highlight each individual's talents.
Space is limited to twenty five applicants and acceptance is based on a first come basis.
You can download an application from the Roseburg Chamber of Commerce's Web site.
The deadline is August 27.
