Insights to public educations, healthcare & charitable giving; tours of local businesses, attractions, municipal facilities, historic locations, and more.
The B.E.S.T Leadership Program was founded in 2004 by the Smithville, Elgin & Bastrop Chambers of Commerce as means to cultivate community and business leaders in Bastrop County. The program identifies and encourages current and potential leaders by acquainting them with local needs and building an understanding of how individual talents can work together to build a more successful community. Participants are given unique insights into city, county and state level organizations which allow them to build a more in-depth perspective of their own community’s opportunities and challenges. Participants also receive training in the art of leadership itself, strengthening their ability to make a positive impact at home, work, and in the public forum.
If you would be interested in the 2018-19 B.E.S.T. Leadership Course, please call the Smithville Area Chamber of Commerce at (512) 237-2313 and request to be added to the list!
