Leadership Sulphur Springs is back this year, with applications online!
The leadership class is for Hopkins County men and women who want to learn and become more invested in their local community. It’s an intensive nine-month program that immerses the participants in the business and government of Sulphur Springs and Hopkins County.
The tentative dates for this year’s program are attached to the application, which you can access at HopkinsChamber.org.
The registration fee is $500, which covers the cost of the year’s food, drinks, transportation, etc.
