The Commerce Leadership Institute is a wonderful experience allowing participants to connect with leaders within the community as well as growing a greater appreciation of our community. I was hesitant to commit the time but it ended up being well worth the investment.
It is a chance to learn about the community and to meet and network with its leaders.
I gleaned a better understanding of the history of Commerce; which provided a great foundation to better understand the town today.
Commerce has become more important to me every year since I was in the group, even though I live in Greenville. In the years since our group, I have been involved with band boosters, sports boosters and a food outreach with our church.
CLI is a process to teach members of the community about the history and civic structure of Commerce and Hunt County, and to prepare them to lead into the future.
