Although the Clayton County Chamber of Commerce initially required applications for its 2011-2012 Leadership Clayton program to be turned in last Friday, the group has announced people have a couple more days to sign up.

Wednesday is the chamber's new deadline to enroll in the nine-month leadership training program, according to a written announcement from the business group. During the program, participants learn about local issues and how to become leaders while seeking solutions to community issues.

This year's Leadership Clayton program is scheduled to begin with a kick-off retreat in September, with once-a-month classes being held from October of this year, to May 2012, according to the chamber's written announcement concerning the deadline change.

Applications can be obtained logging onto the Clayton County Chamber of Commerce web site, www.claytonchamber.org/. Call (678) 610-4021 for more information about the program.
