The deadline to register for this year's Leadership Brownwood is Aug. 19, and only nine openings remain, the Brownwood Area Chamber of Commerce announced Friday.

Participants in Leadership Brownwood will spend a day each month learning from local leaders and getting to know each other. The Kick-Off Event will be held on Sept. 1.

Starting in October through April, most of the sessions will take place on the first Thursday of the month from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuition of $395 includes transportation to tour sites, lunch and graduation plaque.
