Rockwall Area Chamber of Commerce Presents Rockwall Leadership Class of 2023 – Blue Ribbon News

ROCKWALL, TX (September 9, 2022) The Rockwall Area Chamber of Commerce hosted the Rockwall Leadership Class of 2023 Orientation and Alumni Blender on September 7 at the newly renovated Rockwall Rotary Hall.

The 20 Leadership Rockwall participants for this year will participate in a nine-month program that includes a combination of in-depth problem-solving seminars and skills development designed to enhance self-awareness of leadership approaches.

Participants are immersed in a full-day traveling class, held once a month, that includes guest speakers, hands-on experiences, tours, and relationship building. The class will also work together to plan and execute an officially approved sustainable community project that must be completed by the end of their program.

The Rockwall Leadership Class 2023 Orientation and Alumni Blender, presented by 1+1 Technology IT Services & Solutions, Liechty McGinnis Berryman Bowen Attorneys & Counselors, Baylor Scott & White Medical Center Lake Pointe, Oncor, Republic Services and Southwest Kia Rockwall started at 4 p.m. with a celebratory alumni mixer following. The Rockwall Area Chamber of Commerce hosted over 50 guests who enjoyed fellowship. Alumni, attendees, friends and family spent the evening reconnecting with old acquaintances and networking with new ones.

The Leadership Rockwall program began in 1997 with a class of participants who strived to learn more about the community around them in order to become influential community leaders. Today, Leadership Rockwall attendees are focused on that same goal: to be part of a distinguished network of leaders who challenge their way of thinking and are inspired to immerse themselves in their community.
