GBEOP Recruiting Candidates for 2019 Broome Leadership Institute (BLI) Program

BLI, which just celebrated 31 years, is a highly respected community leadership training program offered through the Greater Binghamton Education Outreach Program (GBEOP), a non-profit affiliate organization of the Greater Binghamton Chamber of Commerce. The Broome Leadership Institute was created under the belief that the future prosperity of a community lies in its people. The goal of the program is to identify people who are interested in playing a key role in making Greater Binghamton the best that it can be.

The benefits are tremendous:

  • Meeting with key decision-makers face-to-face
  • Gaining a broader understanding of the issues affecting our region
  • Learning new skills and making invaluable professional contacts
  • Building the knowledge, experience and contacts needed to make a positive difference in our community
  • Experiencing fun along the way

The BLI program begins with a teambuilding retreat on September 21 and meets for a full day on the first, third and fifth Thursday of each month from October through the end of March. Only 20 diverse applicants are accepted, so we encourage you to apply early since space is limited. There is a fee involved for successful applicants: $1,500 for Chamber members, $1,200 for non-profit Chamber members and $2,500 for non-members. Scholarships are available through money raised by the BLI Alumni Association. Applications are due on July 31.
