The Wilmington Chamber of Commerce's ten-month program is designed to help participants develop their knowledge of the Cape Fear Region and grow their leadership skills. It then encourages participants to use those experiences to "work for the betterment of our community."
There are five components the participants will focus on: Leadership skills/styles; Community issues and challenges; Dynamics of regional social and economic change; Diversity; Class project.
Charlie Cooke, president of Cooke Capital, said, “Haley is a highly motivated recent college graduate who just completed her CFP® certification examination, which is a rarity; she is a future leader of this community and it will be exciting to watch her progression. Her acceptance into this program is just the beginning of her many achievements.”
Leadership Wilmington accepts a maximum of 35 participants each year. The respected program consists of an orientation social, a two-day retreat, eight all-day sessions from September through April, and Work on Wilmington, an annual day of volunteer service.
