Mission

Create Great Leaders Programs of the Grand Rapids Area Chamber of Commerce committed to enhancing and connecting leaders from business, non-profits and government. For more than 25 years, our diverse portfolio of programming has empowered participants with a comprehensive understanding of our community’s challenges and opportunities, preparing them for their roles as Community Trustees.

Description

The Grand Rapids Chamber believes we have it within ourselves to create a community of uncommon greatness. To foster the further development of community trustees, we offer the Leadership Grand Rapids program. Each year, a class of leaders is accepted into the program to take part in an intensive community and professional leadership program founded on the principles of Community Connections, Leadership Skills, Diversity, and Systems Thinking. Through monthly deep dives into key community issues and topics, participants have a chance to deepen their understanding of our community and develop the broad and inclusive mindset needed for community stewardship.
