Leadership Cleburne is a unique program hosted by the Cleburne Chamber. It is a nine-month (Sept.-May) class that gives participants a better perspective into the different businesses and organizations that make up the Cleburne community. The group meets on the second Wednesday of the month within business hours, 8am-5pm. There is one exception to that which is State Day in March, held the 3rd Wednesday of the month to avoid conflicts with spring break. Also, it is an extended time frame because it involves a one-day trip to Austin. Session topics include; city, county, and state government, healthcare, education, economic development, and quality of life.
Applications for the 2019-2020 Leadership Cleburne class are now being accepted by the Cleburne Chamber of Commerce. The next class will begin with Orientation on September 11, 2019 and conclude with Graduation on May 13, 2020.
