The Farmville Area Chamber Leadership Farmville program as an opportunity that helps to nurture community involvement.
The Farmville Area Chamber of prepares to host Leadership Farmville in 2021. Leadership Farmville, sponsored by the Farmville Area Chamber of Commerce, has been in existence for nearly two decades to help develop the next generation of local leaders who understand the issues impacting our community and are committed to helping bring about change using their professional and civic involvement.
What makes our community so special are the people who live, work, and serve here. Farmville and Prince Edward County have thoughtful citizens who are making a positive impact through their civic organizations, churches, elected and appointed offices, and various professional and volunteer roles. Many of our community leaders consider our community’s Leadership Farmville program as an opportunity that helped to nurture their community involvement. We have had great success in this effort.
This year’s Leadership Farmville program will run January -May 2021 with five sessions devoted to subjects that affect community growth and quality of life, including governmental operations, leadership, education, economic development, and community service.
Past participants have emphasized the program has helped them learn to make a difference, given them resources and opportunities to be actively involved in the community, and offered them knowledge about Farmville government, services, and activities.
Participants will be divided into groups, and each group develops a project to improve our community. Many of these projects are implemented and have far-reaching effects. For example, the Summer Film Series at Crute Stage was born from a Leadership Farmville project.
We invite you to consider participating in this year’s Leadership Farmville program. It will provide you with a great opportunity for personal growth, learned and experienced potential influence, the ability to meet other individuals committed to our communities success, and to find ways to make an impact with your time, energy, and talents.
