Education and Networking

One of our main functions as the Chamber of Commerce is to provide opportunities for our members and the community to learn and network.

We are working hard to grow the businesses we have in our community, to develop strong leaders, and to connect with one another in meaningful ways.

Off the Clock is an opportunity to network, relax after work, and learn a little something about the hosting Chamber members. Multiple Chamber members will team up to host the event at a location of their choice. Each event is different, but they are all a fun and terrific way to spend your time, off the clock!

The Success Series is an educational series offered by the Chamber. As interesting topics arise, or as things change in the business world it is important to stay up to date. The Success Series highlights topics such as marketing, social media, tax laws, health and wellness, how-to segments, drugs in the workplace, technological advances, legacy planning, and much more. This series will be available on the Chamber Facebook page and the Chamber YouTube channel.

What is Leadership In Action?

Leadership in Action (LIA) is a series of experiences designed to enhance personal and professional leadership qualities within the unique resources of Paulding County. The sessions explore leadership challenges and opportunities, using class time and tours, to provide the participant with a variety of leadership skills to be used in real world application.

Class size is limited to 20 people, and the participants application must be approved in order to attend. The challenges, speakers, tours and the interaction of the participants provide an unforgettable journey in the quest for leadership.

Participants meet monthly, September through May. The September meeting is mandatory and regular attendance is expected for the remainder of the program. Employers and participants will both be required to read and sign a letter of commitment.

A one-time tuition fee of $450.00 for current Chamber members or $500 fir non-members covers all program fees, materials and meals. Payment is due prior to the first session in September.

The Mural above and the Herb Monroe Community Park was a project of several of the LIA Classes.

Through participant speeches, demonstrations, workshops and tours you can learn more about our community and become a better leader.
