Meet the C-Change Class of 2012
C-Change, the young-professional leadership-development program managed by the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber, commenced its seventh class this month with 56 participants.
The year-long program provides emerging leaders with the opportunity to expand their leadership, career and life skills, while connecting with established leaders and community resources. The program officially began with a kick-off reception and will be followed by a weekend retreat at Camp Joy in February.
C-Change is a component of HYPE, or Harnessing Young Professional Energy, the Chamber-led initiative to attract, develop and engage young talent in Cincinnati USA.
“The primary goal of C-Change is to introduce, expand and encourage community engagement opportunities for participants,” said Julie Bernzott, manager of HYPE programs for the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber. “Now entering its seventh year, C-Change participants will continue to impact our region— not only through work on community projects but also through connecting with business leaders and each other.”
