Davis F. VanderVelde recently completed the Leadership Nampa course offered through the Nampa Chamber of Commerce. The program, which is now in its 17th year, is an excellent educational opportunity for people that want to shape their professional futures and the future of their communities.
No other program provides this kind of in-depth exposure to a variety of issues that impact the citizens of our community. Participants that go through the program, develop a network of relationships throughout the community that will bring a fresh, broadened perspective of the challenges and opportunities facing our community.
He commented on his experience going through the Leadership Nampa program:
The monthly seminars were incredibly helpful providing the participants with many tools to help hone leadership skills. The many tours that were offered provided significant insight into the City and its operations and the many opportunities that exist in Nampa through both private and public enterprise. Perhaps most importantly, I had the opportunity to meet, work with, and foster relationships with many citizens of the City of Nampa. Leadership Nampa was an incredible experience which helped me further appreciate the incredible community that I have the privilege to live and work within.
