Leadership Charlottesville was a signature program of the Chamber from 1982 until 2020.
Our new leadership training program is the Leaders Lab of Greater Charlottesville, launched in September 2022. The Leaders Lab offers a robust leadership skills curriculum and a focus on collaborative community problem-solving.
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 a signature Chamber member-service, community-building program. More than 1080 individuals have graduated from the program, and these graduates are now challenging themselves by serving their employers and our community in active community-building efforts.
Leadership Charlottesville participants have included senior level executives, nonprofit executives and staff, entrepreneurs, local government employees, community leaders, retirees, trailing spouses, activists, young professionals and more.
