Copeland Completes Business Leads Fellowship Program

Chamber COO Andrea Copeland recently completed the 8-month US Chamber Foundation Business Leads Fellowship Program. The program kicked off in June 2023 in Washington, DC, at the US Chamber and concluded in Clearwater, FL with final workshops and graduation. The cohort included 33 chamber and association leaders from all across the country.

The Business Leads Fellowship Program is developing business leaders to be education and workforce champions in their community and better connect education systems and students to opportunity. It equips chambers of commerce and associations with the resources necessary to implement change in the education and workforce pipeline.

Hosted by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Center for Education and Workforce, the program consists of virtual and in-person workshops. Topics include early education, K-12, college and career readiness, postsecondary education, and workforce development. Each workshop is taught by leaders who have put these policies into practice to bring opportunity to their communities.
