Update for 2018-2019

Leadership Lincoln Taking a Hiatus

The Greater Newport Chamber of Commerce (GNCC) has chosen to take a hiatus from its Leadership Lincoln Program, which has been held annually for the last 26 years. The program usually graduates 25-30 students each spring. The newly revamped program is scheduled to begin September 2019.

“Leadership Lincoln and its value to the community is one dear to my heart and one of my favorite programs of the Chamber’s,” said GNCC Interim Director Patti Ferry. “I want to move forward with the planning committee and add some other leadership voices as we look to renew and rejuvenate our program to make it one of (if not the) best in Oregon.”

The goal of Leadership Lincoln is to develop leaders who have an investment in and commitment to the future of Lincoln County and to provide networking opportunities that will enhance positive professional and organizational growth.  Interesting and informative panel discussions and guest speakers present a variety of timely topics chosen to better inform participants about key issues in Lincoln County.
