The Cherokee County Chamber of Commerce has selected the Leadership Cherokee Class of 2014. This represents the 26th year of the program which focuses on a broad range of topics such as economic development, infrastructure, government, justice, education, recreation, tourism, public safety, health care and social/human services.
The goal of the program is to prepare members for a more active role in the Cherokee County community. Acceptance into the program is based on nomination by a firm, an organization or individual. Following the nomination period, nominees are asked to complete a detailed application to be submitted to the Chamber office.
