Leadership Belton

Leadership Belton consists of three main components. The first is getting to know Belton and creating an increased awareness of ongoing programs and activities. The second is a class project. Through this, participants will get hands on experience in working with a diverse group for one common goal, resulting in giving back to the community. The third component distinguishes our Leadership Program from all others. Class participants will receive actual Leadership Training throughout the course of the year. All of the above makes this program a worthwhile investment. For more information, contact Mark Arrazola at (254) 939-3551 or mark@beltonchamber.com.
