Their sponsorship helps provide class shirts for each member and helps with the costs of organizing field trips, meals and the class retreat.

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.
