The Preble County Chamber of Commerce is excited to kick off the second year of Leadership Preble County this fall. The mission of this program is to encourage, educate and stimulate individuals to become more familiar with, more interested in and engage in all facets of civic endeavor that affect the quality of life in Preble County. In June, 2017, 9 graduates of the first session were honored, and we look forward to many more joining their ranks.
What is Leadership Preble County?

The students will meet each month for a half-day session covering topics such as Preble County History & Heritage, Business, Workforce and Economic Development, Agriculture, Health and Human Services, Local, County and State Government, Board training, Public Safety and the Justice System, Quality of Life and Education. Each course instructor will be a local professional representing their area of expertise. There is an overnight retreat at Pleasant Vineyard Campgrounds and a field trip to the Ohio State House.
