Only 50 tickets remain to be sold for the May 10 Chick-fil-A Leadercast at First Baptist Church in Van Buren.

Tickets are $79 each, $75 each for five or more and $69 each for 10 or more for the one-day leadership telecast broadcast live from Atlanta to hundreds of sites throughout the nation.

The Destiny Group partners with the Van Buren Chamber of Commerce along with many other businesses to bring this national leadership event to Van Buren. In 2012, the Chick-Fil-A LeaderCast event sold out with more than 285 attendees.

Chamber Executive Director Jackie Krutsch encourages chamber members to buy tickets because of the limited number which are going fast.

"New, fresh and exciting. That’s how I would describe Leadercast 2013," Krutsch said. "Each year there is something new and exciting. This year we have several new businesses participating so we will have a great networking opportunity for all who attend."

Some of the new sponsors are Turf Pro, Stepping Stone, Coleman Pharmacy and Landmark Ministries.

This year’s speakers will include Jack Welch, former chairman and CEO of General Electric; Andy Stanley, best-selling leadership author and communicator; Mike Krzyzewski, head men’s basketball coach of Duke University and Team USA; John Maxwell, best-selling author and leadership expert; Dr. Henry Cloud, best-selling author and leadership consultant; Lt. Cmdr. Rorke Denver, Navy SEAL and star of the 2012 movie Act of Valor; Sanya Richards­-Ross, 2012 London Olympic gold medalist, track & field; David Allen, best-selling author of Getting Things Done and productivity expert; and Condolezza Rice, secretary of state (2005-2009).

Those attending will have a day of inspiration, learning, networking and more, Krutsch said.

"Chick-fil-A Leadercast is one of the largest events of its kind, broadcasting world-renowned content to hundreds of locations around the world and including Van Buren," she said. "The vision for the Chick-fil-A Leadercast is to be the can’t-miss leadership development event that is both affordable and accessible to all leaders throughout North America and around the world.
