For the next 2 days, I get to hang out with a bunch of business leaders in our community. I am involved with Leadership South Bend/Mishawaka which is run through the St. Joseph County Chamber of Commerse. For the next 2 days we will be learning about what this next year will be all about...This is all about building up our community...I'm all about that!
Here are the stated missiona and values of this organization:
Mission: To develop the capacity and commitment of people to recognize, understand, and respond to their community's trusteeship through civic education, skill building and service. (in other words that wants us to take some ownership of our community and give us the skills to do it!)
Vision: Leadership South Bend/Mishawaka will build a community of leaders with the skills, awareness and motivation to help create opportunities and prosperity for others.
I look forward to learning more of how this will happen tomorrow and Tuesday!
