Leadership St. Pete®
As one of the oldest leadership programs in America and a division of the St. Petersburg Area Chamber of Commerce and its affiliate 501(c)(3) Foundation, Leadership St. Pete (LSP) is a dynamic, intensive, interactive, six-month experience designed to promote and enhance community leadership through an in-depth introduction to social, economic, business and political issues in the St. Petersburg area.
LSP challenges participants to look at the challenges and decision-making processes in our community, state and nation. Participants can expect a lot of interaction among class members and face-to-face contact with community leaders that will stimulate creative thinking and help identify ways class members can become more involved in our community.
Each participant will assist in planning a seminar in collaboration with your fellow team members. Additionally, throughout the program class members collaborate with each other on a large class project that benefits a local nonprofit organization, always culminating in at least one full day of work.
The mission of Leadership St. Pete (LSP) is to identify, recruit and develop leaders who represent the diversity of our community and who will assume future leadership roles in the Chamber and other community organizations.
