Registration is now open for the 21st edition of the Toledo Regional Chamber of Commerce’s public service leadership program which begins in January. The Institute for Leadership & Advocacy is designed to build and strengthen our region’s leaders to help them serve their communities and work with public officials. The program is the longest-running of its kind in the state and has to date graduated more than 400 leaders in our region.
There are plenty of moments we’re already looking fondly back on from October – and Halloween is just the start. Between helping to celebrate ribbon cuttings for four area businesses, Dana’s Advanced Manufacturing Training Center, Northwestern Mutual, Crunch Fitness and Next Day Access of Northwest Ohio, and putting on fabulous in-person events, October was a month to remember. In addition to our members who held ribbon cuttings, we’d of course like to celebrate our new members who joined us in October 2021 as well.
