The Lake Oswego Chamber of Commerce graduated the 21st class of its Leadership Lake Oswego program.
The program is sponsored by The Bank of Oswego. Graduation took place June 4 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel.
'This is one of the largest, if not the largest class the program has graduated,' said Chamber CEO Jerry Wheeler.
Thirty-five students from all walks of life in Lake Oswego went through the nine-month program that features leadership skill training, personal development and community awareness.
Co-chairs for the program this year were Jim Franceus and Anne Meckley.
Featured speaker at the graduation dinner was Kathy Condon, Vancouver, Wash., an executive coach, speaker and corporate trainer. In 1994, Condon founded KC Solutions, a company that focuses on connecting and developing the potential in people. She has extensive experience working with city and county governments, financial advisers, insurance agents, manufacturing companies, including hi-tech companies, marketing professionals and self-employed people.
Wheeler said the 'key to the success of each session were the presentations provided by Dr. Bill Korach, superintendent of the Lake Oswego School District. Other community leaders also were invited to share their perspectives on leadership.'
Reservations are now being accepted for next year's class, which begins in September with an overnight retreat. For more information, contact the chamber office at 503-636-3634.
