Leadership EXCEL, a joint program between the Crowley and Jeff Davis Chambers of Commerce, is pleased to announce the members of the 2018 Class. The selected participants represent a cross section of the community’s business, civic, and non-profit sectors.
Leadership EXCEL was established to prepare a diverse group of professionals for leadership positions in the community. The program lays the groundwork for a well-rounded understanding of the community, sparks community involvement, and exposes participants to a variety of community leaders, new opportunities, and leadership skills.
The program focuses on topic areas such as education, city and state government, economic development, the arts and culture, and social services. Graduates leave the program with first-hand knowledge of the issues facing our region and the potential for a positive civic-engagement.
The eleven-month program begins with a two-day retreat in January. From March-November, the class devotes an entire day each month for discussion with community and business leaders, trips throughout the community, and engaging exercises pertinent to the program topics.
