Time is running out for Nassau County residents to apply for the next class of Leadership Nassau, the Amelia Island-Fernandina Beach-Yulee Chamber of Commerce's leadership development program. Application deadline for the Leadership Nassau Class of 2011 is 5 p.m. Friday.

Participants undergo an intensive, 10-month program studying the history, economy, government, environment and culture of Nassau County with the goal of developing new community leaders.

Leadership Nassau participants will attend a two-day opening retreat in August, meet all day once a month from September to April and attend key governmental meetings throughout the year. The daylong monthly classes cover a broad spectrum of issues: economic development, education, justice and law enforcement, health and social concerns, government, arts and culture, environment and recreation, and regional business.

Applications for Leadership Nassau are available at the chamber's offices, 961687 Gateway Blvd., Suite 101G, Amelia Island, or by calling 261-3248, by e-mailing info@aifby. …
