Leadership Indian River
the act of making a difference and achieving priority results through people; the ability to lead.
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. Application must be submitted. A class of 20 to 25 individuals are selected annually for this tuition based program. Program participants have numerous opportunities to interact and dialogue with established community leadership.
