Leadership Cleveland County

The Chamber started Leadership Cleveland County in 1989. Designed to develop informed, involved and concerned leaders within the community, Leadership Cleveland County gives participants the opportunity to study Cleveland County businesses and communities – its history, government, economy, human services and culture – and recognize challenges, opportunities and resources. The program gives both experienced and developing leaders a broader view of civic leadership responsibilities and opportunities through direct contact with a wide spectrum of institutions and people who shape the community where we live and work. More than 350 individuals have graduated from this popular program, and many now hold leadership roles through the Cleveland County Chamber, area organizations, businesses, local and state governments.
