Strategic Alliance With Neumann University's Center for Leadership

The Neumann University Center for Leadership and Delaware County Chamber of Commerce (Chamber) are pleased to announce a strategic partnership in presenting the Center for Leadership 2015-16 Speaker Series. Neumann University will host six programs over the coming academic year-in September, October, November, February, March and April-with the Chamber serving as lead presenting sponsor of the Center for Leadership Speaker Series.

The partnership between the Center for Leadership and the Chamber will bring a better focus on issues related specifically to the business community of Delaware County. In addition to providing advertising synergy to both parties, the Chamber will offer strategic guidance on Center for Leadership programming and engage chamber members for potential speaking opportunities for local businesses.
The Center for Leadership serves as a venue for existing and emerging community, business and non-profit leaders to enhance their leadership skills. Center for Leadership programs bring together three to five high-ranking executives to discuss topics related to leadership, business ethics, community development and entrepreneurship. Each program is designed to develop leaders who are: better prepared for their offices, educated to avoid potential pitfalls, and equipped with the tools to make values-driven decisions with a positive impact for the community and business.

For the coming spring 2016 semester, the Center for Leadership will present programs on sustainability for businesses, the energy industry in Southeastern Pennsylvania, and women in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) careers. Information on the upcoming season of programming with full list of confirmed speakers will be available in the coming weeks.

"The Neumann University Center for Leadership is a result of a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Education and is intended to serve as a community leadership development venue where beginning and mid-level community, corporate, and non-profit emerging leaders have the opportunity to learn about the proper roles, relationships, and responsibilities of public and private office holding, including appointed, elected, and volunteered (e.g., nonprofit trustee/board) positions. These learning opportunities will be taught by a combination of scholars and successful community leaders including experienced practitioners, and office holders."
