Cost is $300 per person for chamber members (includes BSU employees and registered students) and $350 for non-chamber members. Cost includes textbook, continental breakfasts, and graduation lunch. The Academy for Community Leadership (ACL) is a partnership between Ball State University and the Muncie-Delaware County Chamber of Commerce. Each fall, this 10-week course is offered targeting those interested in becoming more active members of the community. Participants will meet key community leaders and participate in a community project. Meetings are held at strategic locations throughout the county. ACL helps develop leadership talent and potential, and provides valuable networking opportunities for participants. Most of our community's current leaders in business, philanthropy, education and government have participated in the Academy.   To learn more or to REGISTER for the series, visit the Chamber's Web site.
