About Leadership Greenville
The Chamber's flagship leadership program is designed to help develop informed, committed and qualified leaders for Greenville County. By taking an intensive look into the issues affecting Greenville County, Leadership Greenville prepares and motivates participants to provide quality, dynamic leadership within the area. Since the program began in 1973, there have been over 2000 participants. Many alumni have served in key leadership positions within their businesses and organizations, as well as city council, county council, school board, members of Congress and judges.
New classes embark each year on a journey to understand the inner-workings of our area, including Managed Growth and the Economy, Quality of Life, Human Services, Local Government, Justice, Education and State Government.Each class selects projects to meet a need in the area. Class Projects are chosen based on proposals submitted by class members, as well as nonprofit Chamber-Investor organizations.
If you are invited to participate, we are confident that you will find it to be one of the most enriching, engaging, and inspiring experiences in your life. You will almost certainly develop life-long friendships with other civic-minded men and women in our community, as well as a deeper understanding of what makes our community exceptional and also the challenges we face.
How to Get Involved
Leadership Greenville requires a 10-month commitment. Participants are selected each spring through an application process based upon their past involvement in the community and their ability to set and achieve high personal goals.
