Leadership Mineral Wells

100_9785.JPG

Leadership Mineral Wells encourages personal and civic leadership and development in a variety of areas--from elected office to the social services sector and business community.

Having the broad-based knowledge Leadership Mineral Wells provides has enabled past participants to better serve the community in roles such as city council, Chamber board of directors, and hospital and school boards. Currently five members of the Mineral Wells City Council are Leadership alums.

In addition, Leadership Mineral Wells is an excellent way to meet and network with other leaders with the same objective: to make a difference in the Mineral Wells area and Palo Pinto County.

The Program

Through a series of self-facilitated programs, Leadership Mineral Wells participants receive a thorough overview of local government, human needs, education, and business as it pertains to Mineral Wells and Palo Pinto County. Participants typically travel throughout the county and city during the course of a day, meeting with business owners, governmental officials, and agency executives.


The Project

Leadership Mineral Wells classes are required over the course of their year to develop and execute a class project. The project is up to the class but must be approved by the Chamber executive director.

Leadership Mineral Wells Class 18 participated in the Clark Gardens Botanical Park 5K to raise funds for the Mineral Wells Center of Life, whose mission is empowering individuals to improve their lives through education and employment.
