History: The Charlottesville Regional Chamber of Commerce established Leadership Charlottesville in 1982 as an “economic development” initiative in order to advance a key Chamber program to serve our member enterprises' efforts to help build an active corps of engaged, dedicated civic leaders. Leadership Charlottesville has become and remains a signature Chamber member-service, community-building program. More than 860 individuals have graduated from Leadership Charlottesville and these graduates are now challenging themselves by serving their employers and our community in active community-building efforts.

How It Works: Leadership Charlottesville (LC) is a 9-month tuition-based program that begins in September and concludes in May with team project presentations and graduation. The fall program, held from September to November, consists of 12 sessions built around a curriculum of community issues. Nine of these sessions meet on consecutive Wednesday afternoons at designated locations around the community. There are also three monthly sessions held in February, March and April. At least 80% of the non-mandatory sessions must be attended to qualify for a certification of completion. See brochure for schedule of sessions.

Class Projects: As part of the Leadership Charlottesville program, class members participate in project teams to address significant needs within the community. In order to provide our teams the best possible project offerings, project ideas are received from local community organizations. Request for Proposals (RFP) are received throughout October and November from nonprofits that are Chamber members. RFPs are sent via ChamberBits and email. You can also contact the Leadership Charlottesville Director for a form.

Leadership Charlottesville is currently seeking RFPs for project ideas from local nonprofits for the Class of 2015. If you have a specific project idea for your organization or the community, we encourage you to complete and submit an RFP by Wednesday, November 5. You just may be one the eight organizations selected to
present to the class on November 19th.
