    Announcing the Leadership Dutchess Class of 2023

    The Chamber Foundation is pleased to announce the members of the Leadership Dutchess Class of 2023! These individuals will embark on a nine-month journey of learning about themselves, each other, and the community.

    A signature leadership program of The Chamber Foundation, Inc., Leadership Dutchess has been dedicated to educating and motivating citizens to serve in leadership roles within our community for over 30 years. By the end of the program, it is expected that each class member will grow professionally and personally. Participants are primed to become stewards of our community and to take on roles as board members and volunteers, carrying on future leadership in the Hudson Valley.

    I am thrilled to see what the future holds for the Leadership Dutchess Class of 2023. Each participant was interviewed before being accepted, so as you meet these individuals in the community, please congratulate them and wish them well on their Leadership Dutchess journey! 
    It’s not too early to consider your candidacy for the Leadership Dutchess Class of 2024!  Applications for the class of 2024 open on February 1st, 2023. Contact me for more information today:  845-454-1700 ext. 1025 or email me at Laura@chamberfdn.org.
