Leadership Fairfield 2019-2020 Class - Held by the Fairfield Area Chamber of Commerce
The program includes eight monthly sessions each centered around a unique theme. Every session is different but includes expert presenters, panels of community leaders and behind-the-scene tours of Fairfield businesses. By the end of the program, each participant will not only have a well-rounded view of the various business sectors in Fairfield but also have personally connected and networked with Fairfield's top business and community leaders.
For the month of October (session held on Tuesday, October 2nd), the Leadership Fairfield class focused on the manufacturing leaders in our community. They toured Agri-Industrial Plastics, Dexter Laundry, The Sky Factory and Paint-Line. All four of these manufacturing businesses are located in Fairfield, Iowa.
On Saturday, October 12th, Leadership Fairfield participants had the opportunity to volunteer at the Habitat for Humanity build site here in Fairfield. Leadership Fairfield participants are required to fulfill a minimum of 6 hours of volunteer work during the class, which comes to a close in April of 2020.
The Fairfield Area Chamber of Commerce is proud to recognize and showcase Fairfield’s appreciation for the manufacturing sector of our economy. The 2019 Manufacturer’s Appreciation Luncheon will be held on Wednesday, October 9th at 11:30am at the Fairfield Golf and Country Club.
Fairfield manufacturers have historically been outstanding corporate citizens and responsible stewards of our industrial tradition. Each year the Manufacturers Appreciation Luncheon offers members of the Fairfield Manufacturer’s Association a podium before the crowd to share information about trends, new developments, and other news regarding their company and products.
This event is a highly anticipated networking, social gathering, and business lunch. Additionally, we appreciate the long-time partnership with Gamrath-Doyle Insurance who sponsors the lunch for each manufacturing representative.
Registration is required by Friday, October 4th by contacting the Chamber at Events@FairfieldIowa.com, or by calling 641-472-2111. For all manufacturing representatives, lunch is sponsored by Gamrath-Doyle Insurance. The fee for Non-manufacturers which plan to attend the lunch is $22 per person.
