Leadership Chatham Testimonials

Leadership Chatham is the hidden gem of Chatham County! From the eye-opening sessions to the ability to network and meet other individuals from different personal as well as professional backgrounds. Being a native of Chatham County, having the ability to learn about parts of Chatham I never knew of as well as how the county itself connects in various ways was a great experience. I not only grew personally but professionally as well from the connections made and sustained from the program. --Traci Newby, Boys & Girls Club of Central Carolina: Pittsboro

I cannot recommend the Leadership Chatham program through the Chatham County Chamber of Commerce enough! As a new leader of the only hospital in the county, this program provided me with an incredible amount of knowledge and insight into the county. However, the most rewarding, powerful, and impactful part of the program was the great connections made by other attendees and with our guest speakers and tours.---Eric Wolak, Chief Operating Officer, Chief Nursing Officer, Chatham Hospital UNC Health Care

The Leadership Chatham program introduced me to an amazing variety of businesses, programs, and leaders in Chatham County that I may not have been exposed to otherwise. The in-depth tours and activities were not just fun and interesting, they widened my view of the county where I work and live. While I learned more about Chatham, I was also given the opportunity to build strong friendships and connections with others that strive to make a difference in this community! ---Jennie Knowlton, The Quiltmaker Café
