Leadership Indian River County Chamber of Commerce

What is the Leadership Indian River County Program?

Leadership Indian River County is in its 18th year, with over 320 graduates who cover the span of businesses throughout the county.  Our graduates include not-for-profit and for-profit executives, elected officials, entrepreneurs, and community organizers.

Leadership Indian River County is an exciting community leadership program brought to you by the Indian River County Leadership Foundation in partnership with the Indian River County Chamber of Commerce. This nine-session program brings together individuals from many business backgrounds, representing the rich diversity of our community. It offers participants hands-on exploration of our county, covering aspects such as economic development, tourism, infrastructure, natural resources, and government functions.

Our program follows a unique model that focuses on promoting the concept of community leadership.  Each participant builds skills in three key areas:

  • increased community knowledge;
  • the impact of stewardship on their community; and
  • the fundamentals of honing their own leadership skills

By introducing these concepts, program graduates become a more informed and dynamic group of leaders who comprehend the current and future needs of our county and have the contacts and resources available of them to truly create change.

To ensure the best experience for our program, we limit class participation to 20 - 25 participants.  The tuition for the program covers all expenses, meals and transportation over the nine-month experience.

If you're looking to make a meaningful impact on Indian River County and want to become a part of a vibrant network of leaders, we encourage you to consider joining Leadership Indian River County. It's an excellent way to grow and serve our community. We can't wait to welcome you aboard!
