The Executive Program is an exclusive “fast-track” community orientation program that introduces key leaders to community-related issues in an intimate, interactive setting. The program provides a backdrop for Berks County’s past, present and future, as well as insights into the systems that drive Berks County.
The program consists of four week-day evening sessions and one Saturday daytime session.
Each session provides a wealth of information about Berks County that will assist participants in responding to local community needs in light of the history, culture, current challenges and the economics of the area.
Along with a group of other high-level decision makers, participants gain valuable guidance in their consideration of business and community activities. Their personal lives are enhanced through the valuable friendships acquired through the program.
The Executive Program is intended for those leaders who have recently accepted positions of influence in Berks County, who wish to learn more about our community, and who know the value of connecting with their peers to explore opportunities for improving the quality of their professional and personal life.
Applications for the executive program are considered year-round. The program is available as the market demands.
