EBL Leadership Program
As you advance down your career path, it’s imperative that you build your leadership strengths and learn new ways to achieve greater impact.
The EBL Leadership Program focuses on the key personal development skills needed to help young people become strong leaders within the business community and continue to advance our region.
The program consists of classroom training and networking opportunities. Training sessions are held the second Friday of the month at 8 a.m. at Chamber investor Dopkins & Company, LLP, 200 International Drive, Williamsville.
