South Sixth Street’s Universal Banker Austin Graham is planning to improve his leadership skills, get to know more of our community’s businesses and business executives, and learn how innovators think thanks to his participation in the Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce’s upcoming Leadership Springfield program.
The eight-month program starts Sept. 27. As part of the training, Austin and other participants will complete an assignment to help benefit an area non-profit. Austin says, “I am greatly looking forward to this opportunity, and I’m excited to be representing INB.”
