Cottonwood Chamber chief completes Academy training
Lana Tolleson, the President/CEO at the Cottonwood Chamber of Commerce, was among the 33 chamber executives to graduate last Friday from Academy, a professional development program presented by the Western Association of Chamber Executives (W.A.C.E.).
Academy is an interactive three-day training program on chamber management essentials designed for today's chamber executives and staff professionals.
"We congratulate all of the graduates and their chambers for having the vision to invest in professional development," said W.A.C.E. President Dave Kilby.
During the three-year Academy program, graduates participated in 18 three-hour classes and successfully completed additional independent study outside of the classroom.
WACE is an association of chamber of commerce executives and staff professionals designed to promote and enhance professional development. With approximately 800 members from fourteen Western states, WACE is the largest state or regional association of chamber of commerce executives in the United States.
