Leadership MAC

See McMinnville From a Variety of Perspectives

“Use your chamber membership as a jumping off point to connect you to other people and organizations in the community.  The Chamber Leadership Class is a great way to do this.  In my chamber leadership class, 23 years ago, were people who would later rise into leadership roles in both local government and business.  The class is a great way to meet current and future leaders.”   – Sam Justice (1994 graduate)
