Word From The Chairman
   

Well, 2013 is drawing to a close. The North SA Chamber has filled the year with a number of events and programs that have informed our members and brought businesses together to promote commerce among them. We have a few more events left, and I invite you to register online for the December Social U and Networking Breakfast, as well as consider getting to know fellow members by attending one of the Ambassador ribbon cutting ceremonies scheduled between now and the end of the year.

Leadership LabAdditionally, it will be my honor to congratulate the largest graduating class of Leadership Lab at the commencement ceremony this Friday, November 22. The North Chamber’s Leadership Lab academy is an amazing resource for cultivating the emerging talent within our businesses. Lab exposes leaders to a rigorous year of building self-awareness, creating lasting relationships and challenging individuals to expand and hone a range of professional skills.

On behalf of Dahill, I’m proud to support and recognize the participants and I want to thank each of the Leadership Lab sponsors including eESI, Padgett Stratemann & Co. and Security Service Federal Credit Union. Special thanks to the location sponsors: Alterman, Bank of America, Westin La Cantera Hill Country Resort, Northeast Lakeview College, Rackspace Hosting, Rio Cibolo Ranch, Southwest Research Institute and University of the Incarnate Word for providing facilities for each lab session.

Additionally, my hat is off to the Leadership Lab program chair Malcolm McGee, CMIT Solutions of San Antonio North, and his co-chair Lisa Pinto, SWBC. They have done an incredible job planning and implementing each session.

The North Chamber is accepting applications through December 10 for Leadership Lab candidates for the Class of 2014. If you are interested in nominating yourself or a member of your team, learn more by downloading the Lab Brochure or access the Lab Application here.

I know you will join me in honoring the commitment and achievements of the 2013 Class of Leadership Lab graduates.

Congratulations! Leadership Lab Class of 2013 View the list of graduates...
