Chamber CEO continues education

Chamber president completes third session of training
Jeannette Patak, president of the Ennis Chamber of Commerce, has recently returned from an educational excursion to Tucson, Ariz.
Patak is in her third session of a four-year course offered to business leaders and chamber managers across the nation. Instructors with various backgrounds in business and chamber expertise bring vast years of knowledge and experience to students from across the country. Chambers of Commerce, large and small, are represented at these classes.
Students are instructed in the aspects of leadership, assistance for small businesses and large corporations and general community practices.
The course is desinged to help the chamber presidents, CEO’s and managers provide a larger spectrum of diversity and knowledge while dealing with business managers, employees, suppliers, and others. General aspects of selling, trading and dealing with the general public are covered in the course.
Chamber leaders also receive training in handling various problems and deficiencies, as well as managing successful operations.
Patak’s course is designed to be completed in four years, with students attending a one-week training and class session once a year. However, Patak has elected to accelerate the training sessions and complete the course this summer by attending a June session, which will allow her to graduate in only two years.
Patak said feels the knowledge and camaraderie she has gained at these sessions will certainly help her in assisting the businesses of the city as well as the city leaders in dealing with issues at hand and others that may arise in the coming years of Ennis’ growth.
Patak said she is looking forward to working with chamber board members, city leaders and local business owners, as well as the other citizens of Ennis to help in any way possible.
