Leadership St. LucieIdentifies and Develops Diverse Leaders Who Impact The Community Through Leadership
In its 38th year, Leadership St. Lucie continues to develop a network of community leaders providing the background, knowledge, and expertise necessary for them to serve in public or private leadership positions within St. Lucie County. Each year, up to thirty candidates are selected to participate in the program from nominations by alumni, individuals, businesses, community associations, and governmental bodies. Selections are made based upon a nominee’s volunteerism, education, professional achievement, personal objectives, commitment to the community, and community accomplishments.
Participants agree to a two-year commitment with the St. Lucie County Chamber of Commerce. First, they undertake an eleven-month program designed to increase their individual and community leadership skills. The class spends one day a month studying specific aspects of the community, such as education, area government, local history, economic development, health, and human services, the environment, cultural awareness, and quality of life issues. Upon graduation, participants are asked to serve on a Chamber committee, in order to apply their community knowledge and leadership skills for the betterment of St. Lucie County.
If you are interested in experiencing a year-long adventure and learning about your community in ways you never imagined, please contact the Chamber of Commerce Foundation for more information.
