Leadership Program & Chamber Leaders
Leadership Indian River County is a community leadership program offered by the Indian River County Chamber of Commerce. The 7-session training program brings together a cross-section of the community, representing our social, economic and geographic diverse population for a hands-on, multi-disciplinary study of our community. Participants gain an introduction to the infrastructure, natural resources and current political issues of Indian River County and an understanding of what constitutes leadership.
The program is based on a model that incorporates nourishing and developing community leaders: building community knowledge, developing leadership skills, and gaining an understanding of community stewardship. The program prepares participants for active involvement in public and private sectors and civic responsibility creating a better informed and vigorous leadership with a greater understanding of county needs- now and in the future.
Participants are selected on the basis of demonstrated leadership ability as well as evidence of community interest and commitment. Nominations are submitted by individuals, area businesses and community organizations. A class of 22 to 24 individuals are selected annually for this tuition based program. Program participants have numerous opportunities to interact opportunity and dialogue with established community leadership.

Indian River County Community Leaders Summits
Since late 2007, the Chamber has hosted Community Leaders Summits several times each year by bringing together the leaders of Indian River County. Through the efforts of those attending Community Leaders Summits, a variety of economic development initiatives have moved forward at the county level.
Community Leaders Summits provide a great venue for our leaders to discuss and plan the priorities that will meet the future needs of our county and will drive actions in the coming years. Some of those actions are driven by the Chamber, while some may be driven by other organizations or by our government leaders.
