Leadership Training Needed More Than Ever

Events Upcoming

New Members

Many of us in our everyday life bear witness to people in positions of authority and influence that do not present the characteristics and integrity to inspire and motivate those they wish to follow them. In a world where there is so much division, where so many are uninterested in meaningful compromise, and there is a shortage of integrity, leadership development is needed now more than ever.  The Chamber continues to find ways to offer those leadership development opportunities, and will once again offer the John Maxwell Live2Lead rebroadcast.

John C. Maxwell is a #New York Times best-selling author, coach and speaker who has sold more than 26 million books in 50 languages. You'll breathe new life into your leadership during this information-packed half day event. Learn from world-class leadership experts in the morning and return to your office ready to implement your new action plan and lead with renewed passion and committment.

The rebroadcast of the John Maxwell Company LIVE2LEAD event, in partnership with presenting sponsor PNC Bank, will take place Tuesday, February 26 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the Memorial Center for Learning and Innovation (228 W. Mill​er, Springfield). Registration is now open and the cost to attend is $49 per person.  To register, go to or contact Lisa Schafer at The Chamber at (217) 525-1173 ext. 203 or at
