  • About Project LEAD About Project LEAD

    The Chamber’s leadership program, Project LEAD, begins every year in September, and is followed by monthly sessions at area companies and organizations with the goal of planning, fundraising, and ultimately implementing their chosen project. Project LEAD participants are introduced to the leadership of the area’s largest employers, while learning the inner workings of what makes the community function. Facilitated by Ryan Hill of KLAS Solutions; the program strives to build future leaders with a desire to serve the community, so participants also determine a project that addresses a local issue or concern.
