Thirty additional civic–minded individuals have joined the ranks of community-oriented men and women educated in the workings of Boca Raton through the Greater Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership Boca program.
The two-and-a-half dozen participants in Leadership Boca’s Class of 2017 received certificates last month for completing the eight-week course designed to help citizens develop an awareness of business issues and challenges facing the community.
The Chamber’s effort to make sure that local leaders possess the knowledge to help them meet the challenges of the future came to an official end with a luncheon and certificate presentation June 14 at Boca Country Club.
“We have an eclectic bunch here,” Lloyd Comiter, co-chair of Leadership Boca 2017 and an alumnus of the Class of 2016, told the audience during the mid-day event.
“You are now informed, and ready make a difference in your community,” he added.
