The Business Ed Committee provides vital programs that train, educate, and develop collaborative partnerships that contribute to business success.
The Business Ed Committee brings various training seminars to all of its Chamber members throughout the year. This year they are bringing the following trainings to the Yankton Chamber membership:
"Team 2.0: Effective Leadership for First Time Managers and Supervisors" with Bill Drury in February
"How to Supervise People and Lead a Team" with Glenn Shepard in June
Every summer before school begins, the Chamber hosts a luncheon and FAM tour of Yankton for all new Yankton teachers and faculty.
Manufacturing Week showcases Yankton's manufacturing sector and the impact it has on our community. Students and the general public can tour local manufacturing facilities to learn what is produced right here in Yankton. Teams from our local manufacturing companies compete in a spirited and friendly Manufacturing Olympics event to culminate the week and thank everyone in this leading sector for their hard work and dedication.
Chamber members are welcome to apply for our annual Leadership Yankton Program, where they can develop their personal leadership skills, learn from other community leaders, and gain a deeper understanding of the Yankton community. The program consists of 5 sessions, held one day per week. This program is held in September, and the application window for the next class will open summer of 2020.
